Overview of the DeWitt Lab

Our environmental developmental neuroimmunotoxicology research program explores relationships between biological organisms and their developmental responses after exposure to environmental toxicants. Early life exposure to a variety of agents may impact the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems, resulting in altered development that may present as diseases or disorders in childhood or later in life. We are particularly interested in how impacts on the immune system lead to downstream effects on the nervous system. Please visit our lab-specific web page for more detailed information about our research program.
