Posted: 9/28/2023 (CSDE Awards)

Delaney Glass, Ph.D. candidate and NIH T32 Fellow at CSDE was awarded the National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant over the summer for her dissertation research “Effects of Extreme Stressors in Adolescence”. This dissertation grant funding is in addition to a Wenner-Gren grant awarded earlier this year. Based in the CSDE Biodemography Lab, her project will examine the embodiment of displacement and poverty-derived psychosocial stressors through the assessment of relationships between pubertal and metabolic hormones among Jordanian non-refugee and Syrian refugee adolescents. Upon completion of the project, she will share research findings with interested stakeholder organizations serving youth communities in Northern Jordan.
