The Stanton Stress & Coping Laboratory is directed by Annette L. Stanton, Ph.D., Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology, Professor of Psychology and of Psychiatry/Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA.

Dr. Stanton’s research centers on specifying factors that help and hinder individuals as they adjust to health-related adversity. She is interested in testing theories of stress and coping and related conceptual models in individuals and caregivers confronting cancer, and other stressors.

The Stanton Stress and Coping Laboratory is staffed by post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, staff research associates, undergraduate research assistants, and volunteers.
