Weiss Stress and Depression Research Lab

Our lab focuses on stress and depression as key psychological challenges to overall physical and mental health, with particular attention to the psychological distress faced by women and their infants.  We examine stress and depression:

  1. as potential causative factors underlying health problems and biopsychosocial outcomes

  2. as symptoms that are associated with various biomarkers and phenotypes

  3. as outcomes mediated and moderated by biological and social determinants.
