Research synopsis: 

My research involved broad multidisciplinary investigation of mind-body therapies and integrative medicine for chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions that integrates theory, concepts, research design, and analytic approaches as well as basic, clinical, and psychosocial sciences. Collaborating with multidisciplinary teams in the US and across the world, our group has greatly expanded and enhanced knowledge of the field of complementary and integrative medicine. In terms of clinical efficacy and effectiveness research, we have led the demonstration of the effects of Tai Chi mind-body interventions on health outcomes in chronic disease, pain and well-being, osteoarthritis pain and PTSD. Other mechanistic research has focused on mind-body studies of the immune system, muscle physiology of knee osteoarthritis and the neurobiology of fibromyalgia.
