Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, PhD
Ohio State University
Dr. Kiecolt-Glaser's work focuses on psychological influences on immune and endocrine function, and their implications for health. She is interested by the many ways that stress, in particular, can alter the functioning of the immune system, and intrigued by possible interventions that may counter the effects of stress.
One of Dr. Kiecolt-Glaser's current projects is a randomized controlled trial designed to examine the effects of yoga on fatigue, immune function, and mood in breast cancer survivors.
Her studies (in collaboration with Dr. Ronald Glaser) have demonstrated important health consequences of stress, including slower wound healing and impaired vaccine responses. They also have shown that chronic stress substantially accelerates age-related changes in inflammation.
