Thaddeus Pace explores endocrine and immune system changes in people who suffer from stress-related psychiatric illness or who have had adverse early life experiences. His investigations have highlighted the potential of compassion meditation and other complementary practices to help individuals exposed to trauma, including patients with post-traumatic stress disorder and children in state foster care programs. Pace’s work has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and has appeared in Neuroscience, Psychoneuroendocrinology, The American Journal of Psychiatry and International Immunopharmacology. His research aims to contribute new approaches to the long-term health and well-being of children and adults in challenging circumstances.
