The In utero Environment, Cancer Over the Life-course and Relevance to Current Trends in Cancer Incidence: Direct Evidence From a 60-year Follow-up of the Child Health and Development Studies Cohort

3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET

Barbara A. Cohn, Ph.D., M.P.H.External Web Site Policy
Director, Child Health and Development Studies, Public Health Institute

View Webinar Description

The 3-Generation Child Health and Development Studies has explored the relation of perinatal events and environmental chemical exposures to cancer in mothers, sons and daughters and recently to cancer risk factors in granddaughters. These are some of the first studies ever to report on the relation of in utero exposures to cancer risk and to consider the importance of exposure timing during windows of susceptibility. Dr. Cohn will summarize published studies on breast cancer, testes cancer, and new findings on early onset colon cancer and our newest funding and approach for investigation of two-generation risk for lethal prostate cancer with a focus on disparate higher risk for aggressive disease in Black men. She also presented metabolomics findings relevant to uncovering mechanisms observed for patterns of cancer risk in the Child Health and Development Studies cohort and discuss her view of next steps for life-course studies of cancer.
