  • Everyday Stress and Effects on the Body

    Interdisciplinary research studying how stress corresponds to inflammation in body systems and results in high blood pressure

Chronic, unpredictable stress—the kind we experience in modern everyday life—impacts various areas of the body, causing inflammation and high blood pressure that leads to cardiovascular disease. We seek to better understand those connections for new treatments and health care applications that reduce the number of heart and vascular disease cases nationwide, and right here at home.
