The Fry Lab studies how environmental exposures to toxic substances are associated with human disease with a particular focus on genomic and epigenomic perturbations. A current focal point in the lab is maternal-child health, with interest in prenatal exposure to various toxic substances including arsenic, cadmium, and perfluorinated chemicals. Our interdisciplinary team of researchers conduct human population-based research, cell culture-based research and mouse model-based research to elucidate our understanding of these environmental exposures.

Mission Statement: With an eye on solutions, we identify genomic and epigenomic mechanisms linking prenatal exposure to chemicals and adverse outcomes in pregnancy and childhood.
