Tina Kretschmer is of four University of Groningen researchers who received a ERC Starting Grant this year.

We know from previous work that peer relationships in adolescence have consequences for psychological wellbeing in adulthood, but this project looks further than that. Dr Tina Kretschmer proposes that the consequences of peer experiences are of much greater significance for one's development. In this project she explores the transmission of peer experiences across social contexts by looking at how one's adult romantic relationships and friendships are affected by earlier peer experiences. Additionally she studies whether peer experiences are passed on across generations and affect one’s offspring via environmental, genetic, and epigenetic pathways. The results of this project will greatly improve our knowledge on the role of peers for social development.
