Judith Carroll is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at UCLA. Her research focuses on identifying the biological mechanisms through which behavioral and psychosocial factors influence vulnerability for age-related disease, immunosenescence, and accelerated aging. My translational work asks how sleep loss, psychosocial adversities, socioeconomic disparities, and early life toxic stress may operate at the system and cellular level to affect the aging process and disease vulnerability, with a particular emphasis on examining cellular stress, inflammation, cellular aging, and allostatic load.

Michael Irwin is the Norman Cousins Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Director of the Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology at the UCLA Semel Institute, Director of the UCLA Cousins Center in Psychoneuroimmunology, Director of the Training Program in Psychoneuroimmunology and Mental Health, and Director of the Inflammatory Biology Core of the Older Adults for Independence Center. Working in the area of psychoneuroimmunology for nearly two decades, his research is broadly based on the interactions between behavior and immunity, with an emphasis on the relationships between sleep disturbance, depression, and inflammation in older adults. He has conducted large-scale longitudinal studies that have examined the prospective relationships between depression, insomnia, fatigue and proinflammatory cytokine activity in older adults. In addition, he has conducted experimental studies that have examined the role of inflammation on induction of the depressive symptoms and neurobiological correlates, as well as the role of sleep disturbance in the modulation of cellular and genomic markers of inflammation, including monocytic cellular expression of inflammatory cytokines and activation of the transcription factor nuclear factor (NF) kB.
