Lessons Learned for Developing an “Exposome” for Children’s Cohort Studies: Challenges and Successes in Applying new Methods for Assessment, Integration, and Analytics
M-LEEaD Center Winter Seminar Series: Elaine Faustman, PhD
Dr. Elaine Faustman is a toxicologist and Professor in the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences. She is also Adjunct Professor in the UW Evans School of Public Policy and Governance. One key aim of her research is to understand molecular pathways that control normal brain cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. Faustman’s group is working to understand the biochemical, molecular, and exposure mechanisms that define children’s susceptibility to environmental chemicals. A focus of her research has been on pesticides and to assess pesticide risks to normal childhood development and learning.
