Reproductive Epidemiology

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.

Karin B. Michels

Dr. Michels has expertise in epidemiologic methods, and epigenetic, nutritional, and cancer epidemiology. Her research focuses on women's health. 

Dr. Michels is one of the co-founders of the area of epigenetic epidemiology and has made seminal contributions to the methods used in this field. Her research addresses the role of epigenetics in the developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD). The Michels' lab studies the impact of events during perinatal life on the establishment of the epigenome.

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.
