Carolyn McCabe

Research Interests

Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) framework to investigate exposures and behavior patterns during the perinatal to early-childhood periods and their association with increased risk for disease. Specifically, this includes maternal and fetal exposures to endocrine disrupting chemicals and the epigenome; developing evidence-based methods to screen for EDC exposure in vulnerable populations; early childhood parenting behaviors and childhood obesity; and the utilization of patient-reported outcome tools in standard prenatal and pediatric care.
