Congratulations to IBG lab assistant and Fairview High student, Anuradha Prakash, who won first place in the Animal Science category at the Corden Pharma Science Fair, and won the Regional Special Award from the American Statistical Association. She advances to state competition!
IBG graduate student Maia Frieser, faculty Fellow Scott Vrieze, and colleague published a meta analysis reporting that after genetic testing carriers of genetic risk factors for complex diseases show significant behavior changes after six months when compared to noncarriers.
Associate Professor of Integrative Physiology and IBG Faculty Fellow, Matt McQueen, received the 2018 Boulder Faculty Assembly Award for leadership and service: "Through his research at the Institute for Behavioral Genetics at CU Boulder, he started studying addiction, impulsivity and disinhibition. He also directs the Public Health Program and Epidemiology Laboratory."
IBG researchers Alta du Pont, Soo Rhee, and colleagues find that the association between dyadic (e.g., marital) adjustment and symptoms of depression and anxiety is largely due to common nonshared environmental influences, such as partners’ characteristics.
