Embryonic Origins of Adult Disease & Health - the 'New' Science of Environmental Health

Wildlife, domesticated and laboratory animals have been used to predict detrimental human health effects from environmental variables for decades. There is growing concern, however, that exposure to low levels of ‘endocrine-active’ contaminants early in embryonic development coupled with altered climate can lead to altered health, and disease. Although each species is unique, molecular, cellular and physiological systems are conserved allowing insight into the process of human health from ‘wildlife sentinel species’. This talk will focus on what we have learned over the last 25 years concerning the role of environmental contaminants and health.
