Psychobiology

Van_gogh

The Psychobiology research group is concerned with the pathways through which sociodemographic and psychosocial factors influence physical disease processes. A major aim of the group is to understand how factors such as socioeconomic status, social isolation, work stress and hostility 'get under the skin', and influence biological functions in health and disease. A second theme is the investigation of lifestyle and patterns of health behaviour, and how health behaviour interacts with biological processes to affect disease risk.
