"Through the Looking Glass at Early Life Exposures and Health"
Michele Forman, the Bruton Professor of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin, will speak on "Through the Looking Glass at Early Life Exposures and Health" at 8:30 a.m. in the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship, Room 121. The lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
For more than 30 years, Forman has focused her research on women's health throughout the life course with an emphasis on the effect of pregnancy, early childhood, puberty, and the reproductive years on risk of breast and other hormonal cancers. She seeks to understand how a woman's nutritional status in pregnancy influences the newborn's health and the mother's health after pregnancy and the effects of each on intermediate markers of and on cancer risk in the offspring and mother, respectively.
