Development of temperament/personality; relationship of temperament and social status to stress and health; individual differences in stress and health in the natural environment.

David Vandenbergh

Professor of Biobehavioral Health
Genetics of addiction in human populations and its neurobiological basis in animal models.

Bernhard Luscher

Emphasis Area Representative, Neurobiology; Director of the Center for Molecular Investigation of Neurological Disorders; Professor of Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Function of GABAergic synaptic transmission in health and disease, with emphasis of stress based psychiatric disorders such as major depressive disorders and mechanisms of antidepressant drug action

Helen Kamens

Assistant Professor of Biobehavioral Health
Identification of genetic mechanisms that contribute to complex behaviors with a special emphasis on alcohol and tobacco use.

Laura Klein

Professor of Biobehavioral Health
Biobehavioral effects of stress on drug abuse; sex differences in neuroendocrine and behavioral stress responses; nicotine regulation of stress reactivity.

Costas Maranas

Donald B. Broughton Professor of Chemical Engineering
Computational studies of metabolism and gene regulation.

W. Larry Kenney

Professor of Physiology and Kinesiology
Environmental and exercise physiology, particularly human thermoregulation, skin blood flow, and the biophysics of heat exchange.

Orfeu Buxton

Professor of Biobehavioral Health
The causes of chronic sleep deficiency in the workplace, home, and society; the health consequences of chronic sleep deficiency, especially cardiometabolic outcomes, and the physiologic and social mechanisms by which these outcomes arise. Successful aging is a central focus of this work. Ongoing interdisciplinary human studies involve sleep loss, aging, and insomnia, as well as health disparities.

Greg Shearer

Associate Professor of Nutritional Sciences
We seek to understand disease-related functional changes in the context of global changes in lipid mediators (bioactive metabolites of dietary fatty acids) and use them to identify markers of disease and better ways to prevent or manage disease

Thomas Neuberger

Director, High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging Facility

Runze Li

Co-Director of the Center for Statistical Genetics; Eberly Family Chair and Associate Department Head in Statistics

Nikki Crowley

Assistant Research Professor
investigation of peptidergic transmission throughout the brain, using cell-specific and pathway-specific manipulations to understand how peptides alter neuronal signaling and behavior, particularly in the context of stress and drug use.

Herschel Elliott

Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering

Karolina Skibicka

Huck Chair of Metabolic Physiology; Associate Professor of Nutritional Sciences
Utilizing rodent models to discover novel neural substrates that control fundamental homeostatic and reward controls of food intake, and their failures in the case of obesity and infection-induced anorexia; How food and feeding behavior affect neural circuits controlling sociability and emotionality.
