Understanding the interaction between children’s experiences early in life and their psychobiologic responses to stress to predict health in young children; health issues for children in child care; culture.
Primary prevention and early predictors of young children’s mental and physical health, including kindergarten readiness.
Seven year cohort study of pesticide exposure on children’s autonomic nervous system and health; randomized control studies of nutrition and physical activity in child care; integrated pest management in child care; community-based intervention study to improve mental and physical health of children 0-8 years old in high risk community.

The genetic dissection of human disorders, primarily in the area of symptoms (i.e. fatigue, pain, sleep disturbance, depression) in the setting of chronic disease (i.e. cancer, HIV). The role of inflammation in these processes is of central interest to my laboratory. Other chronic disease models resulting from inflammation (i.e. nonalcoholic fatty liver disease) are also a focus of our investigations.
Identification of genomic determinants of complex traits using a combination of whole genome search, molecular genetics, and functional analysis (i.e. gene expression, protein analyses) of candidate genes and the integration of these data to identify emergent properties of biological processes (termed “systems biology”).
Symptoms Clusters in Oncology Patients Receiving Chemotherapy (including a genome-wide scan); Genetics of Pain and Lymphedema in Breast Cancer; Genetics of fatigue and energy deficit. Genetics/genomics of symptoms (i.e. pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance) and symptom clusters in chronic HIV infection.
