Mission Statement[edit | edit source]

When we think back to our daily activities, whether its school or household chores, we often come across a feeling called stress. How does stres make you feel? Does it impact your routine? How does it influence our actions? What conditions make our life stressful? Does stress have an influence on how we get along with our families? Do stressful family relationships have a negative impact on our health? What are the ways we can prevent these negative effects? In this FIRE stream, we are curious to learn about how stress affects our relationships, and how those relationships impact our mental and physical health. We are a multidisciplinary stream composed of two separate labs, namely the Animal Lab and the Human Lab, which conduct research in different yet complimentary ways. Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to take our research “from the bench to the bedside.”
