Dr. Eli Puterman studies how adversity experienced across the lifespan – starting in childhood all the way through older adulthood – accelerates the aging of our immune system and impacts psychological stress reactivity. Using interventions, laboratory-based stress manipulations and ambulatory assessments, Dr. Puterman’s research is aimed to develop tailored activity-based interventions with novel targets, including immune system aging and biological and psychological stress resiliency.
