PsychoEpiGenetics Laboratory (PEG Lab)
The main research focus of PEG Lab is investigating the role of psychological and genetic factors and their interactions on human behavior. Current emphasis is on the effect of these interactions on individuals’ stress response systems and vulnerability or resilience to psychological disorders. In order to understand the possible underlying mechanisms of these interactions, investigation of epigenetic modifications, such as changes in DNA methylation, is also among research interests of the lab.
