Project

Prenatal Organochlorine Metabolites, Thyroid Function and Development

Project Director(s)

Myrto Petreas

This project will assess whether exposure to metabolites of endocrine-disrupting compounds during pregnancy is associated with adverse development or mild deficiencies in maternal thyroid function. Adverse developmental findings in the children, if any, will be further assessed to see if they are attributable to deficient exposure to maternal thyroid hormone in utero.
