We welcome and are excited to work with all families! Currently, the Grow to Care Lab's research focuses on families with children ages 5-15 years, but other SFU researchers study younger and older children.
If you are interested in engaging in research at SFU, please add your contact information to the SFU Child Research Group database (see "Sign-Up!" link below), and someone will contact you if you are eligible for a study with us.
Studies are conducted online and/or in-person on SFU's Burnaby campus, and range in length and time commitment. Participation is always voluntary and often includes compensation/incentives. We look forward to working with you!
Dr. Peplak will be accepting graduate students for fall 2024 start.
