Gene Environment Interaction and Adverse Health Outcomes

Our current research interests are to understand molecular mechanisms underlying environmentally induced developmental origins of adverse health effects and transgenerational inheritance of these outcomes. Our laboratory utilizes modern state-of-the-art techniques to study these mechanisms in  model organisms (fish and mice) at the molecular, cellular, and organismal level.
Currently, we are investigating transgenerational effects of developmental exposure to environmental estrogens (bisphenol A, ethinylestradiol) and herbicide atrazine using medaka fish (Oryzias latipes, d-rR strain) as a model.
