Abstract

Objectives: We assess the temporal properties and biosocial mechanisms underlying the associations between early-life SES and later health. Using a life course design spanning adolescence to older adulthood, we assess how early-life and various dimensions of adult SES are associated with immune and metabolic function in different life stages and examine possible bio-behavioral and psychosocial mechanisms underlying these associations.
