Behavioral Immunology and Endocrinology Lab

Procedure List


The BIEL is a research and service laboratory directed by Dr. Laudenslager. This laboratory has been active within the Department of Psychiatry for over 20 years and is located on the UCD-AMC campus. It serves as a core laboratory for a number of other investigators both at UCD as well as collaborations with several universities, hospitals and other organizations. This is due in large part to our unique saliva collection device and most recently the capability to assess cortisol levels in small quantities of hair. The BIEL is recognized as a Laboratory of Excellence by Salimetrics, Inc.
