Welcome from Dr. Megan Gunnar

Gunnar Lab Covid-19 Response: All face-to-face research projects are on hold, which means many of the Gunnar Lab studies are not collecting data right now. However, we are still contacting families, gauging interest in the various studies we are running and collecting names to be re-contacted and scheduled once we can actually see participants. For resources, please visit the University of Minnesota’s COVID-19 updates page. 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.
