research training program
The Research Training Program will provide trainees with 1) an understanding of the state of research and current topics in biomedical science of stress, health, and resilience; and 2) training in research methods and measurement in various stress-related research areas to prepare them to conduct translational research on stress, health, and resilience.
The objectives of the program are to develop an understanding of common stress, health, and resilience constructs, theories, and current states of research; understand biological and psychological stress processes and how these processes “get under the skin” to affect health over the lifespan; and develop basic skills and knowledge necessary to conduct holistic, methodologically rigorous research projects related to stress, health, and resilience using a variety of psychological and biological assessment tools and approaches.
The program is open to anyone conducting or wishing to conduct research on these topics, including undergraduate research assistants, master’s and Ph.D. students, and faculty who may wish to integrate these topics into their research.
The program features bi-weekly introductory webinars, resources and how-to guides, monthly expert webinars, networking events, and mentorship opportunities, all designed to enhance trainee’s research skills.
The program starts on October 12th, 2023, with applications accepted until October 6th, 2023.
