Children’s Research Institute Seminar Series: “Organophosphate Pesticide Exposure in Pregnancy in Association with Ultrasound and Delivery Measures of Fetal Growth”
December 10 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
“Organophosphate Pesticide Exposure in Pregnancy in Association with Ultrasound and Delivery Measures of Fetal Growth”
Kelly K. Ferguson, PhD, MPH
Dr. Ferguson leads the Perinatal and Early Life Epidemiology Group at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and holds a secondary appointment in the NIEHS Reproductive & Developmental Biology Laboratory.
The Perinatal and Early Life Epidemiology Group conducts research on how maternal exposure to chemicals impacts pregnancy and the development of the fetus and child. They also investigate biological mechanisms of action — such as inflammation, oxidative stress, and endocrine disruption — that connect chemical exposures to adverse birth outcomes. Read more >>
This seminar is being co-hosted by the Center for Environmental Health and Susceptibility and the Children’s Research Institute.
