About the speaker: Dr. Katie Ehrlich is the director of the Health and Development Lab and an associate professor in Psychology at the Center for Family Research. Dr. Ehrlich’s research takes an interdisciplinary approach to evaluating the ways in which the social world shapes mental and physical health. She is particularly interested in questions about risk and resilience, minority health disparities, and close relationships in adolescence. Her work lies at the intersection of developmental, clinical, and health psychology, and her program of research aims to address how social experiences inside and outside the family become embedded in biological systems that render individuals vulnerable to health problems across the lifespan. Her research is funded by NICHD, NIDA, the NIH Common Fund, the Jacobs Foundation, and the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. In this talk, Dr. Ehrlich will discuss biomarker data collection and analysis of immune-related biological data, including markers of inflammation (e.g., C-reactive protein, cytokines) and stimulated cell culture data. Additionally, she will describe her ongoing research of clinical indicators of health, including obesity and cardiometabolic measures (e.g., lipids, glucose, HbA1c), as well as possibilities for data sharing and research collaboration with Epidemiology and Biostatistics faculty and students.
