Elizabeth, ‘Birdie,’ Shirtcliff, an associate professor in human development and family studies, was awarded a $70,000 subcontact from the University of California Berkeley on a National Institutes of Health research grant. Shirtcliff will investigate the influence of pubertal maturation and stress exposure on biobehavioral development and mental health. The project examines the Center for the Health Assessment of Mothers and Children of Salinas study which is the longest running longitudinal birth cohort study of environmental exposures among children in a farmworker community. Shirtcliff and her team will continue to serve as the project’s biocore for hormone assessments and study design.
