Fostering interdisciplinary collaborations at OSU: Early life exposure to arsenic, intestinal microbiota, and immune functioning in children

Friday, February 14, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

"Fostering interdisciplinary collaborations at OSU: Early life exposure to arsenic, intestinal microbiota, and immune functioning in children" Molly Kile, PhD, Assistant Professor, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety Program, College of Public Health and Human Sciences, Oregon State University

Dr. Kile's major research interests are environmental, molecular epidemiology and global health. She is interested in understanding how exposure to chemicals in our environment influences maternal and child health. Specifically, she is interested in how chemical exposures in utero may alter epigenetic mechanisms that could contribute to chronic diseases later in life. She is also interested in how genetic and other individual factors such as nutritional factors may interact with chemical exposures to influences susceptibility to disease. Dr. Kile has a very strong background in exposure biology and developing cohorts for environmental epidemiological studies, and also a very strong interest in international environmental health studies.
