Dartmouth receives $2 million grant for children's health research center
Date:12/6/2010

Dartmouth recently received a $2 million pilot grant to fund the new Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Center at Dartmouth. The grant is jointly funded by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). Dartmouth's is one of six emerging centers nationally that are undertaking interdisciplinary research to assist public health professionals and policy makers in combating children's diseases caused by environment pollutants.

"Our nascent center will help advance our research on understanding the possible consequences of arsenic exposure on maternal and child health," says Margaret Karagas, the center's director and a professor of community and family medicine in epidemiology at Dartmouth Medical School (DMS). "In particular, it will allow us to gain critical insights on the effects of arsenic exposure on fetal growth and development as well as a mother's and infant's susceptibility to infection."

Populations around the world whose drinking water is highly contaminated with arsenic show increased incidences of low birth weight, fetal losses, cancer, and cardiovascular disease, says Karagas. However, she points out, "We don't yet know what levels of arsenic are safe. In our studies of cancer risks in New Hampshire, we've seen evidence that relatively low levels of exposure may have adverse health effects."

The fetal and neonatal period represent an especially vulnerable window of exposure, and there is a growing awareness that exposures early in life can influence children's health as well
