Carmen Marsit is the Director of the Emory Exposome Research Center, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences funded P30 Core Center dedicated to developing and supporting environmental health research focused on the exposome. He leads a multi-disciplinary research program focused on defining biological mechanisms underlying the role of the environment on human health, particularly focused on the developmental origins of children’s health and disease. He incorporates state-of-the-art high-dimensional genomic and epigenomic tools to define how environmental factors, ranging from toxic trace metals to adversity and psychosocial stress, use unique and shared biological responses to affect health and may provide insights into novel prevention and intervention strategies.
Research interests: genomics, epigenetics, environmental health, child health and development
