Shalev named Mark T. Greenberg Early Career Professor
Idan Shalev, assistant professor of biobehavioral health and Child Maltreatment Solutions Network co-funded faculty member, is the recipient of the Mark T. Greenberg Early Career Professorship for the Study of Children's Health and Development.
Shalev's research entails an interdisciplinary approach to identify mechanisms underpinning the biological embedding of stress across the lifespan. His research combines the disciplines of molecular genetics, endocrinology, neurobiology and psychology. This systems approach integrates data sources across multiple levels of genomic, biomarker and phenotypic data. He tests the effects of stress from early life on change in telomere length and other biomarkers of aging across the life course, and the consequences of change in telomere length for physical and mental health problems
