Eileen Condon


Assistant Professor


Dr. Condon’s research is focused on understanding intergenerational transmission of childhood adversity and protective factors among socioeconomically marginalized families. Inspired by her background as a family nurse practitioner working with underserved communities, the goal of Dr. Condon’s program of research is to identify novel targets for intervention to promote heath and reduce health inequities among marginalized families. Dr. Condon incorporates biological, behavioral, and genetic approaches, including examining the roles of sleep, mental health, parenting, inflammation, the gut microbiome, and gene-environment interactions in the intergenerational transmission of toxic stress. Dr. Condon is currently funded by a K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award from the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) of the National Institutes of Health. Her past research has also been funded by NINR, the American Nurses Foundation, the NAPNAP foundation, and numerous other foundation grants. Dr. Condon earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Villanova University in 2008, and a Master of Science from the Yale School of Nursing in 2012, and PhD in Nursing from Yale University 2018. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Yale School of Nursing in 2021.
