epac lab

early childhood parents and children’s lab


The EPAC Lab is the research branch of Columbia University Head Start and Early Head Start program. Our work focuses on understanding the role that children’s immediate caregiving environments have on their health and development. We are particularly interested in the role of the family and the home environment in supporting positive child development. We study early childhood determinants of long-term health and developmental outcomes, and the efficacy of interventions that aim to promote resiliency in children, particularly those coming from disadvantaged backgrounds.
