Título: Environmental exposures and children's kidney function*
Ponente: Dra. Alison P. Sanders, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
*La ponencia será en inglés.
Resumen de la ponencia: Dr. Sanders will discuss her research that examines early life risk factors for chronic diseases including hypertension and chronic kidney disease. She will describe her recent findings from population-based studies examining early life environmental exposures and children’s renal health, including blood pressure and novel biomarkers of renal dysfunction, in the US and Mexico.
Resumen biográfico: Dr. Alison P. Sanders is an environmental engineer and molecular epidemiologist in the Departments of Pediatrics and Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Alison earned a BS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Virginia, an MS in Environmental Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a PhD in Environmental Sciences and Engineering with a minor in Epidemiology from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Dr. Sanders directs the laboratory for Environmental Nephrotoxicology at Mount Sinai and conducts research that combines exposure science, molecular epidemiology, and toxicology to characterize the developmental effects of early life exposure to metals and other environmental toxicants. Her research program focuses on environmental exposures that may predispose susceptible populationsincluding children, pregnant women, and occupational workersto poor kidney function, hypertension, chronic kidney disease (CKD) or CKD of unknown origin (CKDu).
