The Stress and Neuromodulation Lab (SNL) is a research group at Emory University (Atlanta, USA) lead by Dr. Sanne van Rooij. Our main research goals are to (1) study the effects of stress and traumatic experiences on the brain, (2) identify risk factors for the development of trauma-related disorders, and (3) investigate neuromodulation treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The SNL is a research group within the Grady Trauma Project where we believe it is our responsibility to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion internally, externally, and in all aspects of our research. We seek to create a safe environment in which individuals are free to be themselves and those with diverse backgrounds, identities, experiences, and viewpoints are welcome. Fostering a positive and encouraging atmosphere for all is our mission and we are committed to combatting the multiple aspects of academia, science, and research that are not equitable and impose the systemic exclusion and oppression of marginalized people.
