One of the main interests of Dr. Butsch Kovacic’s lab
is to improve the understanding of how the environment modifies chronic disease
risk in vulnerable children. Specifically, research has focused on using
epidemiologic approaches to identify genetic, infectious, environmental and
molecular biomarkers of childhood asthma and cancer using human biospecimens as
well as clinical and epidemiological data. Over the last 2 years, members of the group have begun to work with clinicians
and community partners to undertake community-based participatory research (CBPR)/mixed
methods projects. Recently, academic partners from numerous individuals across
CCHMC and the University of Cincinnati have joined the effort to support these
community efforts in a novel way.
