Select Projects

Cancer Cluster Analysis:  Investigated whether there was a cancer cluster in residents living near a municipal landfill.  Communicated findings to city officials and residents at public meetings.

Epidemiology Analysis:  Using hospital discharge and air monitoring data, conducted statistical analyses to determine the associations between air pollutants and pediatric asthma hospital admissions.

Regulatory Comment:  Provided written and oral comments to several agencies and organizations (e.g., US EPA, National Toxicology Program) on clinical, epidemiology, toxicity, and mode-of-action studies and their bearing on regulations for pesticides, air pollutants, and other chemicals.

Post-market Safety Assessment:  Evaluated whether on-label use of a pharmaceutical increased cardiovascular disease risk based on a systematic review of randomized controlled trials and observational epidemiology studies.

Product Safety Analysis:  Designed and oversaw laboratory studies to determine possible exposures and subsequent toxicity of a chemical in a toy, considering several routes of exposure.

Systematic Review and Meta-analysis:  Conducted a systematic review and meta-analyses of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), a herbicide, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), gastric cancer, and prostate cancer.

Medical Device Safety Assessment:  Evaluated the potential health risks of saline-filled breast implants based on a review of the peer-reviewed literature and pre- and post-market studies of silicone- and saline-filled breast implants.
