Mark Hatzenbuehler

Assistant Professor, Department of Sociomedical Sciences

Dr. Hatzenbuehler's research focuses broadly on: (1) the causes of mental health disparities related to sexual orientation; (2) the health consequences of exposure to structural forms of stigma; and (3) the identification of biopsychosocial mechanisms linking stigma to adverse health outcomes. His recent work has examined how social policies that differentially target sexual minorities (e.g., same-sex marriage laws, employment non-discrimination policies, anti-bullying policies) affect the mental health of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) populations. He has published over 35 peer-reviewed articles that have been published in several leading journals, including the American Journal of Public Health, Psychological Bulletin, Social Science & Medicine, and Pediatrics. Dr. Hatzenbuehler's work has been widely covered in the media, including radio and television interviews on BBC World News and MSNBC. Additionally, his research has been submitted as evidence in court cases on sexual orientation-related discrimination. Dr. Hatzenbuehler recently received a Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) from the National Institute of Drug Abuse to study social determinants of substance use among LGB adolescents and young adults.
