Gene-Environment Interactions

Alexandra M. Binder

My research has focused on the potential of epigenetic epidemiology to elucidate the pathway by which adult disease susceptibility is influenced by environmental stimuli during critical periods of plasticity in fetal development. To explore multiple facets of this regulatory network, I have worked to develop expertise in the preprocessing and analysis of sequencing and microarray approaches to interrogate genetic variation, chromatin modifications, mRNA expression, and DNA methylation. In association with the post-doctoral molecular biologists in Dr.

Robert Schiestl

Dr. Schiestl received his Ph.D. in Biology and Genetics from the University of Vienna, Austria, in 1983. He is currently a Professor of Pathology, Environmental Health and Radiation Oncology. Previously, he served as Assistant and Associate Professor in the Department of Cancer Cell Biology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Wendie Robbins

Professor Robbins has been a faculty member at UCLA since 1997. She shares an appointment between the School of Nursing and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, Environmental Health Sciences Department. As a member of the Center for Occupational and Environmental Health she has focused her research, teaching and service in the areas of epidemiology, male reproductive health, and occupational/environmental health nursing. Her research couples epidemiologic methods with laboratory-based science, for example, sperm DNA integrity measures related to male reproductive function.
