Dr. Hatch’s research interests are focused on exposures related to fertility and pregnancy outcomes. She has been principal investigator of two NIH-funded grants to evaluate factors related to reproductive health in Denmark. Currently, in collaboration with Dr. Wise, she is leading a five year study to continue enrollment and combine data from the Danish cohort and the similarly-designed PRESTO cohort in North America. The study uses internet-based recruitment and follow-up and is evaluating factors related to fertility, miscarriage, and adverse pregnancy outcomes, with a particular focus on diet and medication use. With support from the Oak Foundation and the National Toxicology Program, Dr. Hatch is evaluating exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals a subset of women in the cohort, and whether they may affect fertility and pregnancy outcomes. Dr. Hatch is also interested in prenatal and childhood exposures in relation to long-term health outcomes such as hormonally-related cancers, reproductive outcomes, and obesity. She teaches cancer epidemiology and has conducted research on several cancer sites including brain cancer, childhood leukemia, and breast and cervical cancer. Prior to joining the faculty at BU in 2000, she was an investigator at the National Cancer Institute, where she led a large cohort study on the health risks of exposure to the synthetic hormone, diethylstilbestrol (DES) among women exposed during pregnancy and their offspring exposed in utero. She continues her involvement with the DES study as a co-investigator of the BU DES study site, where 2nd and 3rd generation offspring are being followed for cancer and other conditions.
