drury_headshot 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. Our work goes from DNA to Cells to Neurons to Neighborhoods and back. By increasing our understanding of all of these factors we expect to assist in developing new ways to the health and wellness of children and their families.
