Our research is focused on cancer and endocrine disruption and involves risk assessment, mechanisms and prevention.

The objective of our research is to understand the connection between exposure to chemicals and cancer and endocrine disruption. We work with both cellular models and analyze data bases to understand mechanisms behind chemically-induced cancer and prevention mechanisms. We also develop methods for biomonitoring and risk assessment. Other areas of interest are combined effects of carcinogens and gender differences in carcinogenesis.

Progress within these areas will lead to improved risk assessment and development of prevention strategies.
