In Utero Exposures to E-cigarettes: implications for childhood obesity

Ann Arbor MI 01-30-2020 01-30-2019

The main goal of Dr. Stephania Cormier laboratory is to determine if exposure during early life to environmental factors (i.e. allergens, pollutants, and respiratory viruses) leads to predisposition, development of, or exacerbation of respiratory disease in the adult. In the short term, they seek: (1) to define the cellular and molecular changes in the pulmonary microenvironment following gestational and/or neonatal exposure; (2) to determine if urban pollutants (e.g. particulates such as diesel exhaust particles), initiate cellular/molecular events in the developing lung which lead to increased susceptibility to airways disease later in life; (3) to define the impact of respiratory viral infection on pulmonary pathophysiology of the infant; and (4) to understand how urban pollutants impact host defense resulting in enhanced morbidity and increased mortality from respiratory infections.
