Applying interdisciplinary research techniques in molecular biology, toxicology, and biophysics to examine the gene-environment interactions of endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure. Understanding the underlying mechanisms modulating DNA damage response and repair will provide insight into future therapeutic intervention for EDC-exposed individuals.
