Dr. Schlomer's current research interests center on polygenic approaches to studying gene-environment interplay, including gene-environment correlations (rGE), gene-by-environment (GxE), and gene-by-intervention (GxI) interactions. In addition, he studies how epigenetic modifications can mediate environmental influences on child and adolescent development. Current research activities include GxI studies on adolescent substance use and aggression/delinquency and research on DNA methylation as a mechanism for the association between childhood stressors and pubertal development.
