Epigenetic Mechanisms of Risk and Resilience: The Role of Parenting

Please join Dr. Justin Parent on Monday, March 1st at 1:00 pm for his faculty candidate seminar. Dr. Parent’s program of research is centered around asking fundamental questions about the mechanisms through which families influence child adaptive and maladaptive development with the goal of optimizing intervention and prevention outcomes.

Dr. Justin Parent


Dr. Parent will present emerging data showing how enhancing family well–being alters stress-related physiological systems among at-risk youth and potentially ameliorates the biological embedding of adversity. The presentation will end with a discussion of the implications of this line of research for developing biological-informed, personalized approaches for risk identification and prevention, together resulting in the reduction of health disparities.
