Liz Kiel co-PI on 5-year NIH grant to study parent-child anxiety

Late last year, Liz Kiel received word that her NIH grant, “Biological Systems As Mediators Of Transactional Influences On Anxiety Risk In The Mother-Child Dyad During Infancy,” submitted with a colleague from Texas A&M, was funded. The project will study how maternal and childhood anxiety influence each other across time, using a variety of psychological and physiological markers. The entire grant provides $2.8M in funding, with more than $1M allocated to Miami, through 2025. In addition to Liz serving as the project’s Co-PI, Robin Thomas and Elise Clerkin will serve as consultants on the project, and the award will support graduate lines in the department as well. Congratulations to Liz and her team!
