RISK PROFILES AND MECHANISMS OF DISEASE IN MALTREATED CHILDREN

(R01 HD086487-01; Tyrka, A., Picard, M. co-investigator)

The goal of this project is to investigate the link between early life stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, systemic inflammation, and telomere maintenance in children exposed to maltreatment. We will examine mitochondrial respiratory chain enzyme function in parallel with other biological, social, and behavioral mediators of risk and resilience.
