More than two dozen faculty, staff and students from the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences (DEOHS) and our research partners will share their research at the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology conference next week.

The 31st annual conference takes place in Utrecht, the Netherlands, from August 25-28.

DEOHS presenters include:

  • Professor Kristie Ebi: Protecting child health in a changing climate and Guidance for estimating and reporting the health co-benefits of mitigation policies and Air pollution exposure modeling
  • Professor Catherine Karr: Prenatal phthalate exposure and child asthma
  • Professor Lianne Sheppard: Epidemiologic evidence of glyphosate’s carcinogenic potential
  • Research scientist Marnie Hazlehurst: Prenatal air pollution and early childhood asthma
  • Research scientist Sun-Young Kim: Comparison between informative and random selection of geographic variables in national-scale air pollution prediction
  • Epidemiologist Christine Loftus: Early life exposure to outdoor air pollution and child behavior in the Conditions Affecting Neurocognitive Development and Learning in Early Childhood (CANDLE) Study and Estimating time-varying exposures to air emissions from animal feeding operations to assess short-term exposure effects in children with asthma
  • Michael Young, staff: The effect of complex traffic-related mixtures on blood pressure: interaction between particles and gases in a trial of vehicle filtration
  • Senior fellow Sabah Quraishi: Approaches to outcome and covariate harmonization—the perfect as the "enemy of the good" and Prenatal exposure to ambient PM2.5, roadway proximity, pre-term birth, and effect modification by socioeconomic indicators and infant sex
  • Affiliate Professor Howard Hu: Framework for adding environmental exposure-outcome pairs to the global burden of disease
  • Affiliate Assistant Professor Anne Riederer: Effectiveness of portable air cleaners to reduce indoor PM2.5 and NH3 in an agricultural cohort of children with asthma
  • Graduate student Yisi Liu: Effect of highway commuting on physiological stress: a randomized, crossover intervention study
  • Doctoral student Rachel Shaffer: Long-term fine particulate matter exposure and cerebrospinal fluid markers of vascular injury, oxidative stress and neurodegeneration
  • Graduate student Shirley Ching-Hsuan Huang: Evaluation of the impact of indoor air filtration on particulate matter exposures and measures of cardiovascular health: a randomized crossover pilot study
