I joined the Human Toxicology Program at the University of Iowa in 2010. As a pharmacist who's concerned about public health, I am conducting a study for the purpose of understanding the association between exposure to toxicants during pregnancy and risk of birth defects using epidemiological approach. These studies can contribute to the establishment of determinants of birth defects and reduction of exposure to those with intervention.
