Stacy Drury, MD, Ph.D

Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Dr. Stacy Drury explores how the interaction of genetic and epigenetic factors with early experience shapes neurodevelopment and long term health outcomes in children.  Her clinical practice and translational research focuses on improving long-term outcomes in at-risk children and infants through an enhanced understanding of the interaction between early life experiences, the stress response systems, and child health and neurodevelopment.

She is the director of the Behavioral and Neurodevelopmental Genetics Laboratory (BANGL). The laboratory includes both a molecular genetics basic science “wet” laboratory and a translational research program.  Her laboratory is currently recruiting mother and infants for the Infant Development Study, funded by the National Institute of Health.
