UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO
Welcome to Professor Andersen's Health Adaptation Research on Trauma (HART) Lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga. In our lab, we study the effects of severe and chronic stress on mental and physical health across the lifespan. Our lab is a fully ambulatory psychophysiology lab, which means we are able to measure biological, psychological and social factors in the real world as they happen. There are several themes of research conducted in this lab.
1) Police Resilience and Health - Intervention Science
2) Use of Force Training for Law Enforcement
3) Trauma Related Health Disparities among Minority and Non Minority populations
