Reproductive Health and Endocrine Disrupting Contaminants: Alligators as Canaries in a Coal Mine

The Center for Genetic Medicine of Northwestern University welcomes the public to attend the Silverstein Lecture Series in April, featuring Louis J. Guillette Jr., Ph.D, director, Marine Biomedicine & Environmental Sciences Center and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical University of South Carolina; Centers of Economic Excellence (CoEE) Endowed Chair of Marine Genomics, Hollings Marine Laboratory; and Professor, Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Dr. Guillette will review the work done in his laboratory examining the ability of environmental contaminants to mimic chemical messengers
(hormones) and alter gene expression and functioning of the reproductive and endocrine systems. 

He will also discuss the effects of various environmental contaminants (including pesticides, industrial chemicals and personal care products) on the development and functioning of the ovary and reproductive system at the gene-to-organ level.

The lecture will take place at 6 p.m. on April 24 in the Abbott Auditorium of the Pancoe Life Sciences Pavilion, 2200 Campus Drive on the Northwestern campus.
