Dr. Argos is an environmental and molecular epidemiologist interested in the effects of metal exposures on cardiometabolic and cancer endpoints across the life course. Her research strongly emphasizes identifying molecular pathways altered by environmental exposures that influence disease risk by leveraging high-dimensional molecular data and biomarker data obtained from biological specimens collected in the epidemiological setting. She is the principal investigator of the Bangladesh Environmental Research in Children's Health (BIRCH) cohort that aims to evaluate early life health effects of arsenic exposure and metal mixtures. She is also a principal investigator of a disease study site examining diabetes and kidney disease progression in collaboration with the newly established Multi-Omics for Health and Disease Consortium and an investigator of the Health Effects of Arsenic Longitudinal Study (HEALS) and the Chicago Field Center of the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos. She previously served as a principal investigator of the Illinois site of the national All of Us Research Program. Dr. Argos has extensive experience implementing longitudinal epidemiologic studies among diverse participant populations in the US and internationally. She is also particularly interested in developing epidemiological methods for assessing gene-environment interactions and environmental mixtures.
