About Us

Welcome to the Adolescence Research Group! We are a psychology research lab at the University of Virginia, led by Dr. Joe Allen, that explores the intricacies of adolescence and their effects on social, mental, and physical health over the lifespan. Our research aims to not only understand the adolescent experience but also promote positive connections and healthy development within it. Take a look through the tabs above to learn more about who we are, what we do, and how you can get involved.
