The Racial Experiences of Youth Laboratory (REYLAB) is a developmental research laboratory in the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University. The REYLAB aims to understand how race has positive and negative implications for Black youth's development and mental health in American society. Though race is salient and influential throughout the lifespan, this lab focuses on the developmental period of adolescence.
Some of the lab's current research questions include:
- How do Black youth experience racial discrimination?
- How is racial discrimination linked to pubertal development?
- What is the relation between racial discrimination and biomarker indicators?
- What mediates and moderates racial discrimination?
- What influences fluctuations in racial identity?
- How do school and neighborhood contexts influence racial identity?
