Stacy-Drury-Science-Page Our research in the Bangl laboratory focuses on how the interaction of genetic and epigenetic factors with early experience shapes child neurodevelopment and long term health outcomes in children. The goal of our translational research is to provide an enhanced understanding of the interaction between early life experiences, the parent-child relationship, the stress response systems, and neurodevelopment. Together with our highly trans-disciplinary collaborators we expect that this enhanced understanding of the neurobiological factors impacted by early adversity will lead to novel intervention and prevention efforts that improve child health and development across the life course.
