Center for Children's Health, the Environment, the Microbiome, and Metabolomics (C-CHEM2)

Center Overview

Center Location: Atlanta, GA

Public Health Impacts: Multiple toxicants can impact the health of women and their babies, especially those of minority communities. By leveraging data from a cohort of African American women in the metro-Atlanta area, the Center for Children’s Health, the Environment, the Microbiome, and Metabolomics (C-CHEM2) aims to study how the complex interactions between different toxicants may affect infant health and neurodevelopment. These studies may inform interventions to reduce exposure to multiple pollutants in urban, minority populations.

Primary Environmental Exposures: Multiple pollutants and toxicants, including air pollutants, parabens, bisphenol A, phthalates, pesticides, and brominated flame retardants

Primary Health Outcomes: Infant outcomes, preterm birth, and neurodevelopment
