Our research orientation considers the impacts of environmental exposures on multiple organ systems within the body, from the lungs to the heart to the brain, from respiratory to cardiovascular to metabolic to neurological. Our focus on population-based epidemiology allows us to consider important time windows across the life stage – from prenatal through our senior years.
