Douglas I. Walker, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Microplastics have been found in water, air, and soil–in urban environments and all the way to formerly pristine settings like the Arctic. Dr. Walker is working with collaborators across the globe to advance our understanding of how this pollution is impacting human health and will discuss how an exposomic framework makes tackling 10,000s of plastic compounds possible.
Moderator: Diane Tuft, Institute for Exposomic Research Executive Board
