How does the environment experienced by a developing embryo influence health outcomes later in life? Are these interactions adaptive or disruptive in ecological and evolutionary contexts? What are the mechanisms? What are the consequences? Much of our active research is focused on addressing these questions in environmental models and humans.
We also are pursuing projects that examine how environmental quality influences fundamental processes of biological aging. What are the mechanisms by which factors like exposures to contaminants influence aging trajectories? Check out the project pages below to learn more!
