Mindfulness, Stress & Health Lab

Welcome to the Mindfulness, Stress & Health Lab

Investigating the outcomes and mechanisms of mindfulness

The Mindfulness, Stress & Health (MSH) Lab conducts interdisciplinary research that brings together psychology, medicine, biology, neuroscience, and exercise/wellness to study the health benefits of mindfulnessThere are many core qualities of mindfulness, including attention, awareness, acceptance, and the ability to respond versus react to stress. Our lab aims to better understand the relationship between being mindfulbeing healthyTo do that, we use different types of studies, including: survey questionnaires; lab experiments to measure stress responses, meditation, and relaxation; clinical trials to test the effectiveness of mindfulness training; and correlational studies to look for links between mindfulness and various measures of stress, health, and psychological well-being.

Our lab is ideal for students who want to gain research experience before applying to Ph.D. programs or medical school.
