Researchers in the brand-new Program for Developmental Psychobiology at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) will aim to understand how neurobiological states mediate and regulate human behavior and the range of psychological experiences. Created as part of the school's Institute for Juvenile Research and set for July 1 start-up, the program is to be codirected by Stephen Porges, PhD, and C. Sue Carter, PhD, who are partners in marriage as well as in research. Both come to Chicago from the University of Maryland, where Porges headed the Department of Human Development and the Institute for Child Study, and Carter was a distinguished university professor in the Department of Biology.
