Rising junior, Sarah Guillaume has been granted Tulane’s Honors Program Summer Funding, numbering among several academically-gifted and intellectually curious students across academic majors to receive this special honor. Along with a living stipend, Sarah has also received $1000 in funding to use towards lab projects, including her poster project that will use our existing data to look at questions surrounding racial socialization.
Rising senior, Sam Perry, has received grant funding to work in our lab for the second summer in a row! This time, she has received the Newcomb-Tulane College Dean’s Grant. She will spend the summer making progress on her upcoming Honors Thesis, which will examine physiological biosynchrony and child emotion and behavior regulation.
We are so proud of CFL research assistant and graduating senior, Victoria Parker, who received two awards from the Tulane Psychology Department this week. Victoria was not only recognized as one of only seven graduating psychology majors to complete an honor’s thesis this year but was also named a 2018 Senior Scholar due to her outstanding performance in both academics and research. This is the highest honor given to an undergraduate in the department, and it couldn’t be more deserved. Congratulations, Victoria! We can’t wait to see what you do next!

We are so proud to announce that our primary investigator, Sarah Gray, Ph.D., has received a prestigious NARSAD Young Investigator Grant through the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation to help fund our work examining the effects of violence exposure on mothers and their preschool-aged children.
