Dr. Ferguson leads the Perinatal and Early Life Epidemiology Group at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and holds a secondary appointment in the NIEHS Reproductive & Developmental Biology Laboratory.

The Perinatal and Early Life Epidemiology Group conducts research on how maternal exposure to chemicals impacts pregnancy and the development of the fetus and child. They also investigate biological mechanisms of action — such as inflammation, oxidative stress, and endocrine disruption — that connect chemical exposures to adverse birth outcomes. Read more >>

The Children's Research Institute Seminar Series is held every month, encouraging interaction between researchers investigating childhood diseases and fostering new research through exposure to cutting-edge, ongoing work.

Lunch will be served. The event will start with the presentation by Dr. Ferguson, followed by time for questions and discussion.

This seminar is being co-hosted by the Center for Environmental Health and Susceptibility and the Children’s Research Institute.
