EH Gijs van Seventer Seminar Series: Biologic Hard Drives in Environmental Health Research.

  • Starts: 12:45 pm on Friday, January 27, 2017
  • Ends: 1:45 pm on Friday, January 27, 2017
Manish Arora B.D.S., M.P.H., Ph.D., FICD Vice Chairman of the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health Division Chief of Environmental Health /// Reconstructing early life history, including environmental stressors, has been one of the greatest challenges in uncovering developmental origins of human health trajectories. The speaker will discuss fundamental concepts that underpin the development of novel biomarkers that can provide detailed temporal information on early life exposure to environmental stressors. /// Manish Arora, B.D.S., M.P.H., Ph.D., FICD, is the Vice Chairman of the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, and Division Chief of Environmental Health. He (along with Dr. Robert Wright) is the founding Director of Exposure Biology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Arora is an environmental epidemiologist and exposure biologist. He graduated with a Ph.D. from the University of Sydney, and undertook postgraduate fellowship training at the Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Arora’s research focuses on effects of prenatal and early childhood chemical exposures on life-long health trajectories. He is known for his work on biomarkers that utilize human deciduous and permanent teeth to reconstruct the timing of exposure to various harmful chemicals and essential nutrients. His methods are being applied to the study of outcomes that are national health priorities, including autism and children’s neurodevelopment. He was the first recipient from the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences of the New Innovator Award.
