A New Population-Scale Approach for the Study of Psychological Stress in the Transition to Adulthood
This project pioneers a new protocol for self-collection of hair samples for large, population representative samples of individuals. Hair will be used to assess cortisol levels (a biomarker for psychological stress) among a large cohort of those experiencing the transition to adulthood. Panel data will be used to establish selection bias in the success of hair collection and cortisol-based measurement of stress.
