Using Baby Teeth as a Tool for Exposome Research

The Washington Post recently featured Manish Arora’s paper on using baby teeth to measure prenatal and early childhood chemical exposures.  The article framed Arora’s work as a part of a broader, emerging field of study on the exposome, and cited HERCULES as the first exposome-specific grant in the U.S.  

Arora is part of the Mount Sinai team that was recently awarded one of six CHEAR Laboratory Hubs.  Through this award, researchers will continue to use teeth, as well as other biological matrices, to measure current and past chemical exposures.  Learn more about Emory’s CHEAR Laboratory Hub here and here.
