Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Adversity (CIRCA)

In 2016, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded OSU Stillwater and OSU-Center for Health Sciences (CHS) an $11.4 million, five-year COBRE grant to build a collaborative research infrastructure in Oklahoma to support the development of high-potential investigators toward independent federal funding within the area of childhood stress, trauma, and health implications. The Center for Integrative Research on Childhood Adversity (CIRCA) was collaboratively created within the college of Human Sciences in Stillwater and the Center for Health Sciences in Tulsa and lead by principle investigator and project director, Dr. Jennifer Hays-Grudo, who shares appointments in the Department of Psychiatry at CHS and the Department of Human Development and Family Science in Stillwater. Most of the sponsored CIRCA investigators, research teams and core directors are physically located in the cities of Stillwater and Tulsa.
