George Slavich’s lab awarded $3 million to build stress surveillance system
Branco Weiss Alumnus George Slavich’s Laboratory for Stress Assessment and Research at UCLA has been awarded $3 million by the State of California to develop a statewide stress surveillance system and establish a network of physicians and scientists to study how stress impacts the body and what can be done to increase resiliency. The three-year competitive grant was awarded by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR).
Dr. Slavich and his team will develop the California Stress, Trauma and Resilience (CAL STAR) Network to study, treat and educate health professionals and community members about toxic stress. This statewide network of scientists and clinicians will also look to uncover how stress affects bodily systems, from the gut to the heart to the brain, and to develop precision medicine interventions for such issues.
