Methylmercury Exposure Through Rice Ingestion: Results from a Prospective Birth Cohort Study in Rural China

Friday, March 16, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Sarah E. Rothenberg, DEnv, Assistant Professor, Environmental and Occupational Health, College of Public Health and Human Sciences, Oregon State University.

Sarah's research goal is to mitigate methylmercury exposure. Methylmercury intake through rice ingestion differs from fish consumption because fish contains beneficial nutrients. Since rice does not, methylmercury intake through rice ingestion may be more harmful. It’s important that we continue this research because half the global population subsists on rice as a staple food.

Sarah joined the College of Public Health and Human Sciences in September 2017. Before coming to Oregon State, she was an assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the University of South Carolina. She’s also held post-doctoral positions at the San Francisco Estuary Institute, the Institute of Geochemistry at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and New York University’s College of Dentistry’s Department of Epidemiology and Health Promotion. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Applied Mathematics, a master’s degree in Statistics and a doctoral degree in Environmental Science and Engineering, all from the University of California, Los Angeles.

The college-wide research seminar is Co-Sponsored by:

The seminar series provides a forum for faculty in the College of Public Health & Human Sciences and other researchers to present and discuss current research topics in an environment conducive to stimulating research collaboration and fostering student learning.
