Research Group Stress, Pain, and Gene-Environment Interplay

Understanding the psychobiology of stress and pain

01 Brain

We are trying to understand how stress exposure is linked to mental health problems, with a particular focus on early-life stress and pain processing.

From genes to behavior

02 Brain DNA

Our main research questions center around how the experience of stress and pain affect health and well-being. For instance, we investigate how our thoughts and behavior affect the way we cope with pain, or how genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors influence stress processing.
