PRC Methods Talk: Collecting Biomarker Data

Join the PRC as two Faculty Research Associates, Chandra Muller and Bridget Goosby, present "Collecting Biomarker Data."

Dr. Chandra Muller is a Professor of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin. Her current research is on how schools and education shape life course outcomes such as work and health.  In particular, she focuses on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) preparation and careers.  Of primary interest is the diversity in experiences and disparities according to gender, race and ethnicity, social class, as well as disability, immigration or language minority status.

Dr. Bridget Goosby is a Professor of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin. She is also co-director of the Life in Frequencies Health Disparities (LifeHD) Research Lab. Her primary research area specializes in identifying pathways linking racial discrimination and other forms of social marginalization to racial inequities in health over the life course and across generations. Her current research in this area integrates biological markers and innovative biometric technology to dynamically examine how inequality gets under the skin to impact health and chronic disease risk in targeted groups.
