The role of life experiences in shaping brain development and outcomes in adulthood, such as educational attainment, income, employment, and life satisfaction, is a topic that appeals to dozens of UT researchers in the social sciences, natural sciences, nursing, communications, and other disciplines.
To foster an interdisciplinary discussion, UT is hosting a SPARKS (Seeking Partnerships for Research and Knowledge) event for interested researchers. Please feel free to share this invitation with other interested faculty you might know.
We encourage attendance by faculty who are interested in Childhood Adversity/Resilience and Long-term Outcomes in Adulthood for the purpose of: (1) preparing the workforce, including developing curriculum; (2) advancing practice and policy; and/or (3) conducting research. All perspectives from basic science to social science and applied research are welcome.
