Novel Approaches to Behavioral Health Innovation: Social genomics and human thriving

June 6, 2024

This talk outlines the role of the autonomic nervous system in regulating human genome function, including the basic physiologic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms involved; their role in disease (particularly sympathetic regulation of inflammatory gene expression) and stress resilience (parasympathetic support for antiviral gene expression); their contribution to social epidemiology and health disparities; their evolutionary roots; and the emerging prospect of “molecular biofeedback” to help shape behavior and lifestyle to maximize human health and well-being. 

This educational activity is designed to change learner competence and focuses on the following competency areas:

  • The American Board of Medical Specialties: Patient care and procedural skills, Medical knowledge
  • Nursing: Employ evidence-based practice
  • Center for the Advancement or Pharmacy Education: Health and wellness, Interprofessional collaboration, Learner, Patient-centered care
  • Pharmacy Technician Certification Board: Pharmacology
  • Interprofessional Education Collaborative: Interprofessional Communication
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Engage in self-reflection, Value diversity in the clinical encounter

Intended Audience

This activity is designed for Psychologists, Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians, Physicians, Nurses, Physician Assistants, Social Workers, and other behavioral health clinicians.

Learning Objectives

As a result of participation in this educational series, members of the healthcare team will be able to:

  • Describe one neural pathway through which psychosocial processes can affect human gene expression.
  • Identify two psychosocial risk factors that are linked to differential gene expession in immune cells.
  • List one type of immune response gene that is regulated by parasympathetic neural activity.

Steven W. Cole, PhD, is a Professor of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences and Medicine in the Division of Hematology-Oncology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.  His research utilizes molecular genetics and computational bioinformatics to analyze the pathways by which social and environmental factors influence the activity of the human genome, as well as viral and cancer genomes.  He pioneered the field of human social genomics, and discovered the "Conserved Transcriptional Response to Adversity" that mediates health disparities via neural regulation of inflammatory and antiviral genes.  He collaborates with more than 200 research groups world-wide through his role as Director of the UCLA Social Genomics Core Laboratory, and is a member of the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Associate Director of the Norman Cousins Center, and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
