Research Statement
|

The Klump lab studies the etiology of eating disorders with an emphasis on genetic and neurobiological risk factors. Dr. Klump is particularly interested in understanding developmental differences in these risk factors across adolescence and adulthood, with a particular emphasis on the role of gonadal hormones and comorbid traits (e.g., personality traits) and disorders (e.g., mood and anxiety disorders).  She approaches these research questions using a translational scientific framework that includes both human and animal models of eating disorder development.

Michigan State University Twin Registry In sum, the MSUTR research will allow for better understanding of the environmental, genetic and neurobiological factors that influence psychological functioning and behavior. Our research will aid in the identification of the origins of internalizing and externalizing symptoms, ultimately informing treatment and prevention efforts.
