Dr. Bruce Lanphear, The Sloan Professor of Children's Environmental Health and the Director of the Cincinnati Children's Environmental Health Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati, will review new data on the adverse health effects of childhood lead exposure, review the major sources of childhood lead exposure and discuss the regulations and tools necessary to shift our focus toward primary prevention.
Lanphear is the principal investigator for a NIH/EPA-funded Children's Environmental Health Center to study fetal and early childhood exposures to prevalent environmental neurotoxins, including lead, pesticides, and environmental tobacco smoke. He is also conducting a randomized controlled trial to test the safety and efficacy of housing repairs to reduce childhood lead exposure and residential injuries in 400 children followed from birth.
Lanphear serves on the Science and Research Work Group of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Children’s Environmental Health Protection, and is a scientific consultant for the National Center for Healthy Housing.
