Overview of the DeWitt Lab

Our research program explores relationships between biological organisms and their responses after exposure to environmental contaminants. We are interested in how early life exposure to a variety of agents may impact the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems, resulting in altered development that may present as disease or disorder in childhood or later in life as well responses of adult organisms following exposure to environmental contaminants. We focus much of our attention on emerging environmental contaminants, especially compounds known as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs).
