Welcome from Dr. Megan Gunnar

Gunnar Lab Covid-19 Response: Most face-to-face research projects are currently on hold, which means some of the Gunnar Lab studies are not collecting data right now. However, we have several projects that families can participate in remotely or online. Visit our “Projects” tab to see which studies are currently recruiting for online participation. Some helpful websites for parents during this period of coronavirus can be found on our Facebook page.

Welcome to the Gunnar Lab for Developmental Psychobiology Research! As a part of the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota, we are dedicated to understanding the complex set of experiences necessary to produce a prosperous, thriving generation of children. Our website provides information about our laboratory, members, and research concerning many aspects of early experience and child development.
