The Stress, Adversity, Resilience and Health (SARAH) lab was developed in 2016 by Dr. John-Henderson. The research in the lab focuses on understanding how psychosocial experiences across the life-span affect health and disease. We utilize multiple methods and measures to understand how the outside world affects health behaviors, physiological outcomes, and consequently health. Among other measures and approaches, we use Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA), behavioral immunology, actigraphy derived measures of sleep-wake cycles and physical activity, ambulatory blood pressure and measurement of subclinical markers of cardiovascular disease. Our hope is that the findings from our research elucidate pathways that promote both risk and resilience, particularly for vulnerable populations.
