Current Data Collection

Biomeasures of chronic stress (hair and saliva for cortisol), immune function (saliva for EBV IgG antibody and viral DNA) and global epigenetic regulation (salivary telomeres) are being collected on a representative sample of approximately 1500 urban adolescents to investigate the relationships between exposure to adverse social environments, biomeasures of stress, and behavioral and health outcomes. To date, over 1200 samples have been collected and assays are underway in the OSU CON laboratory.  Hair for cortisol is also being collected longitudinally approximately 1 year after the first wave to investigate change in stress over time and the extent to which chronic stress predicts future health and well-being.
