 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Birgit Claus Henn’s research focuses primarily on exposure to toxic metals and their impact on child development. She has examined associations between metals exposure and neurodevelopment in multiple pediatric cohorts worldwide, spanning critical periods of development from prenatal exposure through late childhood. Dr. Claus Henn is currently the PI of an NIEHS Career Development Award to utilize novel statistical approaches for analyzing chemical mixtures data in order to understand neurodevelopmental effects of multiple metals. Other research interests include exposure to pesticides and consumer products, effects of toxicants on birth outcomes, and the development and use of novel biomarkers.
