Welcome to the Society and Health Lab at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health!

Our lab is designed to facilitate the study of the interplay between social, psychological and biological factors in health. Principal investigator and director of the lab, Dr. Laura Kubzansky, conducts experimental research investigating connections between stress, social relationships and health to build on and complement epidemiologic research. The lab also provides space for other investigators to conduct interdisciplinary research exploring the interface between societal and biological factors. The lab has housed projects from several faculty members in the School of Public Health, and including research on discrimination and health, and PTSD and health.
