Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Social psychology

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Socioeconomic status, Developmental psychology, Immunology, Clinical psychology and Psychosocial. The Socioeconomic status study combines topics in areas such as Health equity, Demography, Gerontology and Psychological resilience. Her work deals with themes such as Behavioral medicine, Social environment and Perception, which intersect with Developmental psychology.

While the research belongs to areas of Immunology, Edith Chen spends her time largely on the problem of Social genomics, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Monocyte, Transcriptome and Myeloid. Edith Chen interconnects Memoria, Analysis of variance, Recall and Moderation in the investigation of issues within Clinical psychology. Her work carried out in the field of Asthma brings together such families of science as El Niño, Chronic stress, Immune system and Immunopathology.

Her most cited work include:

  • If it goes up, must it come down? Chronic stress and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis in humans. (1686 citations)
  • Psychological Stress in Childhood and Susceptibility to the Chronic Diseases of Aging: Moving toward a Model of Behavioral and Biological Mechanisms. (979 citations)
  • Socioeconomic status and health behaviors in adolescence: a review of the literature. (682 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary scientific interests are in Socioeconomic status, Developmental psychology, Clinical psychology, Asthma and Psychosocial. Her Socioeconomic status research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Health equity, Demography, Gerontology and Environmental health. Her research integrates issues of Psychological intervention, Health psychology, Social environment, Disease and Proinflammatory cytokine in her study of Developmental psychology.

A large part of her Clinical psychology studies is devoted to Stressor. Her Asthma research includes themes of El Niño and Immune system. Her Immunology research incorporates themes from Chronic stress and Social genomics.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Socioeconomic status (34.91%)
  • Developmental psychology (30.17%)
  • Clinical psychology (27.59%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Clinical psychology (27.59%)
  • Socioeconomic status (34.91%)
  • Demography (12.50%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Edith Chen spends much of her time researching Clinical psychology, Socioeconomic status, Demography, Developmental psychology and Depression. Her biological study focuses on Stressor. Her Socioeconomic status study deals with Health equity intersecting with Disadvantaged and Gene.

Her study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Body mass index, Mental health, Young adult and Educational attainment. Her Developmental psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genetic predisposition, National Children's Study, Genetic engineering, Environmental data and Exposure assessment. The concepts of her Asthma study are interwoven with issues in Blood drawing, Social status, Disease and Set.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Early-life socioeconomic disadvantage, not current, predicts accelerated epigenetic aging of monocytes. (32 citations)
  • College completion predicts lower depression but higher metabolic syndrome among disadvantaged minorities in young adulthood. (30 citations)
  • How socioeconomic disadvantages get under the skin and into the brain to influence health development across the lifespan (26 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry
  • Disease

Edith Chen mainly investigates Socioeconomic status, Developmental psychology, Health equity, Demography and Young adult. Her studies in Socioeconomic status integrate themes in fields like Asthma and Set. Asthma is a subfield of Immunology that she investigates.

She has researched Developmental psychology in several fields, including Poverty, Obesity and Moderation. Her Health equity research includes elements of Tumor necrosis factor alpha and Psychological intervention. Her work carried out in the field of Demography brings together such families of science as Body mass index, Disadvantaged, Intervention, Randomized controlled trial and Mental health.
