Currently, his investigations are focused on assessing the effects that stress has on female reproduction, early pregnancy, fetal development and its postnatal consequences for child development.Nepomnaschy is particularly interested in the origin of inter-individual differences in stress physiology and its role in explaining inter-individual differences in morbidity, cognitive abilities, behavior, and energy metabolism.
