Abstract: There is a growing body of research demonstrating that exposures to environmental contaminants and mixtures may be increasing rates of obesity and other metabolic health disorders. Our laboratory studies how environmental chemicals may act through hormone receptors to promote and/or otherwise disrupt fat cell development. In this seminar, I will highlight our research on how environmental samples such as household dust are related to our metabolic health, and our research to interrogate the causal chemicals and molecular mechanisms underlying these effects. Specifically, through testing of specific classes of contaminants and controlled mixture testing of similar and dissimilar chemicals.
