Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The goal of the UCLA Laboratory for Stress Assessment and Research is to advance the science of stress and health to help prevent disease and improve wellbeing. To accomplish this goal, we employ a team science approach to conducting multi-level studies that integrate ideas and methods from psychology, neuroscience, immunology, molecular biology, genetics, and genomics. This enables us to examine how social-environmental stressors promote a variety of mental and physical health problems that cause substantial morbidity and mortality. In addition, we develop online systems for assessing and managing stress, and provide expert consultation and intervention services to a variety of public, private, and governmental organizations. By addressing these issues, we aim to reduce the enormous impact that stress and disease have on human health worldwide.
