About this Project

This project aims to understand the developmental effects of early life lead exposure, specifically related to early childhood growth and sexual maturation. Epigenomic analyses will be used in concert with an epidemiological approach in an effort to understand the molecular mechanisms linking exposure and biological consequences.
