Introduction

Dr. Schlomer's research interests center on gene-environment interplay with a focus on gene-by-environment interactions using measured genes. Current research activities include examining how candidate genes modify adolescent substance use interventions, a study on the relation between candidate genes and female pubertal timing and risky sexual behavior, and a genetically informed sibling study designed to assess fathering effects on girls’ development.
