Presentation: Social relations and structural lag: A brave new age
Dr. Antonucci’s research focuses on social relations and health across the life span, including family, life span and life course development, multigenerational relations, adult development and aging, and comparative studies of social relations and health in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Japan. She is particularly interested in how social relations optimize or jeopardize an individual’s ability to face life’s challenges. She received a Research Career Development Award and currently is funded or has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute on Aging, and several private foundations—the Fetzer Institute, The Hartford Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and the Templeton Foundation.
