Dr. Mitchell's broad research interests include identifying the life course determinants of health and well-being in later life, with a focus on integrating genetic, epigenetic, and social factors. In his current work on gene-environment interactions, he uses longitudinal data from multi-race/ethnic population-based studies of health that have collected genetic and other biomarker data along with a wide range of social science data. He also investigates new methods for collecting and analyzing biological and social data.
