Topic: Lead poisoning

Sung Kyun Park Sung Kyun Park, ScD, MPH

Assistant Professor of Epidemiology
Phone: (734) 936-1719 E-mail: sungkyun@umich.edu

  • Research focuses on health effects of various environmental pollutants, such as air pollution, heavy metals (e.g. lead, cadmium, mercury), endocrine disruptors (e.g. bisphenol-A), and noise
  • Specific interest in gene-environment interaction and nutrition-environment interaction
  • Interest in statistical approaches to integrating multiple pollutants and pollutant mixtures (e.g. Environmental Risk Score)
  • With regard to lead, his main interest is in the health effects of long-term cumulative exposure. Cumulative lead exposure can be evaluated better with lead levels in bone rather than in blood because of long half-life of bone lead (decades).

Dana DolinoyDana Dolinoy, Ph.D.

Professor and Chair in Environmental Health Sciences
Phone: (734) 647-3155 E-mail: ddolinoy@umich.edu

  • Dana Dolinoy's lab investigates environmental epigenetics and gene-environment interactions. It is increasingly recognized that environmental exposure to chemical, nutritional, and behavioral factors alters gene expression and affects health and disease by not only mutating promoter and coding regions of genes, but also by modifying the epigenome.      MORE
