Affiliated Faculty

The STAR Initiative includes multiple core faculty members with expertise in the study or treatment of stress, trauma, and resilience. Research led by the core faculty encompasses the entire lifespan, employs diverse methodologies, and ranges from the basic science of biological processes underlying risk and adaptation, to the development, implementation, and dissemination of interventions to address stress and trauma in community settings. This research is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health, Health Resources and Services Administration, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, as well as several private foundations at the national and international level. Many of the STAR Initiative Affiliated Faculty and Trainees already participate in monthly Adversity Research Meetings that began in September 2017. The focus of these meetings is the development of collaborative research ideas, feedback on pilot data and grant proposals, and critical review of recent literature. All STAR Initiative affiliated faculty and trainees will also have the opportunity to participate in the development of specialty research subgroups.
