Dr. Geronimus’ research interests include understanding the social and biological mechanisms that mediate racial disparities in health along the full pathway from the environmental to the cellular level: cultural influences on population variation in family structure and age-at-first birth; the effects of poverty, institutionalized discrimination, and residential areas on health; the strategies used by marginalized communities to mitigate the harmful health effects of poverty and structural racism; and the perturbations public policies sometimes cause in these autonomous protections.
