Identifying newborns at risk of adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes and obesity from air pollution
The goal of the Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health (CCCEH) is to contribute to the ECHO consortium and to develop, validate, and implement an urgently needed new biomarker measurable in an easy-to-obtain, small-volume cord blood sample that reflects prenatal exposure to widespread environmental pollutants, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), and is predictive of risk of adverse outcomes in the domains of obesity and neurodevelopment.
