Dr Judite Blanc
Postdoctoral Research Associate
I am a research psychologist trained in the United States of America, France and Haiti. Currently, I am completing an NIH-T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship at the New York University School of Medicine, Department of Population Health, within the Division of Health and Behavior at the Center for Healthful Behavior Change. As part of this mentored research program, my research focuses on the relationships between stress exposure (including traumatic and chronic stress), resilience, and health outcomes (such as sleep, cardiovascular risks, aging and DNA methylation). To this end, I use both quantitative and qualitative methodologies in my research.
The ultimate objective of my research program is to develop culturally-tailored mind-body medicine to tackle the effect of racial/ethnic and gender disparities in specific psychophysiological outcomes of stress exposure locally, nationally and globally.
