Advancing Novel Research Methods to Improve Children’s Health

Date: Apr 28, 2016
Time: 11:00 AM (Thu) - 1:00 PM (Thu)
Presenters: Dr. Linda Birnbaum, Dr. Lynn Goldman, Dr. Jonathan Cohen, Dr. Rebecca Clifton, Dr. Ami Zota

On Thursday, April 28, ICF International and George Washington University will bring together experts to discuss research methods around improving children’s health.

Researchers are seeking to understand the implications of environmental exposures during sensitive periods of early life—pre-, peri-, and post-natally—when all children undergo rapid development. The ultimate aim is to prevent childhood disease by improving our knowledge of risk factors and understanding of how early exposures may affect biological pathways leading to disease processes.

Dr. Linda Birnbaum, Director of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), will kick off this discussion by highlighting NIEHS-sponsored research in areas of emerging importance for children’s health, including respiratory, metabolic, birth, and neurodevelopment outcomes of early life exposures. Dr. Lynn Goldman, Dean of the Milken Institute School of Public Health, will moderate an expert panel discussion focusing on lessons learned and ways to better expound these four public health areas of concern through novel methods and technologies, such as:

  • Data integration and harmonization
  • Systems biology approaches
  • New in vitro data streams, advanced statistics, citizen science
  • Improving science translation
