Dr. Aschengrau has conducted epidemiologic research on environmental pollution and the risk of disease for nearly 30 years. In particular, she has led investigations on the relationship between drinking water contaminants and abnormal pregnancy outcomes, neurological disorders, and cancer, and on the impact of lead hazard reduction measures among inner-city children. She is currently the principal investigator of a case-control study examining the risk of birth defects and stillbirths following prenatal exposure to  tetrachloroethylene-contaminated drinking water. In 2003, Dr. Aschengrau published her first book, Essentials of Epidemiology in Public Health, with coauthor George R. Seage III, Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health. Now in its third edition, the best-selling book has been used in more than 100 schools across the United States. Dr. Aschengrau has served as a member of the Institute of Medicine Committee on Gulf War and Health, as a consultant to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Agency for Toxic Substances Disease Registry, and as a jury member for the annual John Heinz Memorial Award honoring an individual whose work has made a significant impact on the environment. She is currently an associate editor of the journal Environmental Health.
