The Center for Health and Addiction: Neuroscience, Genes, and Environment

Operating out of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, The CUChange Lab is co-directed by Dr. Angela Bryan, professor of Social Psychology, and Dr. Kent Hutchison, professor of Clinical Psychology.

Members of the CUChange lab seek to conduct transdisciplinary research to explore the psychological, neurocognitive, physiological, genetic, and epigenetic factors that are linked with health and risk behavior. We believe that a better understanding of the full range of influences on health and risk behavior will allow better tailoring of behavioral interventions to increase health behavior, decrease risk behavior, and ultimately decrease morbidity and mortality and increase quality of life.

This joint website will provide you with information on current research ongoing in the lab.
