Welcome to the website for the Researching Environmental Stress Interactions on Longitudinal Internalizing, Externalizing, & Neurodevelopmental Trajectories (RESILIENT) Lab! We are a developmental neuroscience lab located within the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (DCAP) at NYU Grossman School of Medicine in New York City.
Our lab examines the impact of interactive prenatal maternal mental and physical health conditions on infant and early childhood brain-behavioral development. Our ongoing projects are primarily focused on the effects of prenatal maternal metabolic disorders, prenatal maternal mood disorders, and substance exposure on child brain-behavioral development from birth through early childhood. Our ultimate goal is to identify mechanisms, objective markers, and modifiable factors associated with resiliency in order to support families from pregnancy through early childhood.
