When adults confront profound and prolonged stressors, what factors enhance or hinder their well-being and health? The ultimate goal of my program of research is to promote optimal quality of life and health for adults and their loved ones as they live with major stressors, with a focus on the experience of cancer. In my laboratory, we first work to characterize useful and harmful responses to major stressors. We then translate those findings into action by developing and testing approaches to enhance psychological and physical health during serious stressors.

Why do our social relationships have such a profound impact on our well-being? Why does feeling connected to those we love feel so good, whereas feeling estranged from them causes so much pain? In my laboratory, we use behavioral, physiological, and neuroimaging techniques to answer these questions and to understand how our need for social connection has left its mark on our minds, our brains, and our bodies.
