Resilience to stress and mood disorders

The Hodes lab examines sex differences in the peripheral and central immune system. They are interested in how these mechanisms interact with brain plasticity to drive behavioral differences in susceptibility and resiliency to stress. This includes examining the molecular substrates directing the functional contribution of hormones and cytokines to the onset, symptoms, and generational transmission of mood disorders in both sexes.
