The Stanton Stress & Coping Laboratory is directed by Annette L. Stanton, Ph.D., 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 couples confronting cancer, reproductive problems, and other stressors.

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