Dr. Janice Kiecolt-Glaser will deliver the second lecture in NIDCR’s seminar series on Friday, May 9 at 11 a.m. in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10. Her talk is titled “How Stress Kills: New Perspectives
on Stress and Inflammation.”
A leading researcher in the field of psychoneuroimmunology,
Kiecolt-Glaser’s work has contributed
to establishing a causal relationship between stress and depression, chronic inflammation
and illnesses such as cardiovascular disease,
osteoporosis and arthritis, among others. Her research suggests that physiological and behavioral interventions to diminish
stress and depression may improve the outcome of many diseases.
Kiecolt-Glaser holds the S. Robert Davis chair of medicine at Ohio State University
College of Medicine. She is also professor of psychiatry and psychology and director of the division of health psychology in the department of psychiatry.
Her lecture is part of the NIDCR Seminar Series “From Basic Research to Therapy—
The Latest Frontier.” The series provides a forum for identifying gaps in knowledge as well as critical questions that need to be addressed to enable the best transition from basic research to therapy.
