This 2 ½-day workshop will introduce participants to the field of biomarkers of acute and chronic stress. The workshop will begin with an overview of the stress concept and the incorporation of allostasis theory and allostatic load to the field of stress research. We will then introduce the main theme of biomarkers for measuring stress reactivity:

Why you should include biomarker measures in your research

What you can measure

Where different endocrine, immune, epigenetic, and physiological markers can be detected and measured (including types of fluid, cell, or tissue samples where relevant)

How to measure your markers of interest

New this year is a section on stress-sensitive epigenetic marks (e.g., DNA methylation and histone modifications) to be presented by Dr. Richard Hunter, UMass-Boston.
