Research Interests:
Our laboratory focuses on understanding the fetal origins of adult reproductive and metabolic disorders. The lab is interested how environmental exposures (endocrine disruptors) during prenatal life can induce adaptive mechanisms in the developing organism leading up to pathophysiological consequences during postnatal life. We use in vivo approaches to characterize the pathophysiological outcomes and in vitro approaches (cellular and molecular) to understand the mechanisms and pathways by which the pathological outcomes occur.
