The Cincinnati Children’s Environmental Health Center was created in 2001 with an award from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Initial activities included five separate projects:
The goal was to assess the risks of environmental exposures during two critical developmental phases: in utero and in early childhood. This project established the HOME Study, which is an on-going research study within the center.
PI: Bruce Lanphear, MD, MPH, Cincinnati Children’s, Simon-Fraser University, British Columbia Children’s Hospital
The goal was to test the hypothesis that meconium samples can be used for simultaneous analysis of several different environmental neurotoxicants to which the fetus is exposed.
PI: Cynthia F. Bearer, MD, PhD, University of Maryland Hospital for Children
The goal was to test and validate tools for community members to assess levels of contaminants in their home environment.
PI: Sandy Roda, BA, University of Cincinnati
The goal was to examine the relationship between early prenatal and postnatal exposure to lead and antisocial behavior in adulthood.
PI: M. Douglas Ris, PhD, Texas Children’s Hospital
The goal was to relate environmental lead exposure with alterations in brain structure, neurochemistry, and function assessed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS).
