  • Park Group - Environmental and Molecular Epidemiology
    Our group investigates environmental and occupational determinants of chronic diseases including cardio-metabolic disease and age-related hearing loss and eye diseases with a focus on exploring biological pathways using gene-environment and nutrition-environment interactions. Environmental and occupational determinants include air pollution, heavy metals (e.g., lead, cadmium, mercury), endocrine disruptors (e.g., bisphenol-A), and occupational noise. We are also interested in statistical approaches to integrating multiple pollutants and pollutant mixtures (e.g. Environmental Risk Score). The study cohorts we examine are the Normative Aging Study, Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN), Amish Family Diabetes Study (AFDS), and national survey data (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and Korea NHANES (KNHANES)).
