Welcome to the website for the Chronic Illness Research Laboratory. 

We are a research team of faculty and students exploring a broad spectrum of areas in chronic illness, from prevention to post-diagnostic quality of life and survivorship. Our lab is located at San Diego State University and is directed by Dr. Vanessa Malcarne.  We are affiliated with San Diego State University's Department of Psychology, the Moores UCSD Cancer Center, and the SDSU/UCSD Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology.  We also collaborate with researchers around the U.S. and internationally.
