Center members share existing skills and expertise to create a broad-based multidisciplinary support structure for individual and collaborative research projects. We are interested in developing studies that investigate the effects of mindfulness on physical, physiological, intellectual and creative health. We aim to establish outreach efforts and networks campus-wide and with other institutions so as to advance, for instance, current research on meditation’s impact on pain, stress, the brain and the immune system.
Our Research Goals:
- Produce a high standard of interdisciplinary research regarding topics related to mindfulness and consciousness studies
- Develop collaborative networks for exploring research in mindfulness
