EHSC Seminar Series: Air pollution and autism: novel methods to explore live birth bias

Marc Weisskopf, PhD, ScD - Professor, Harvard University

EHSC Seminar Series Highlighted Topic: Neurotoxicology
Seminar Narrative: Accumulating evidence suggests an association between perinatal air pollution exposure and autism spectrum disorders in offspring. Nonetheless, important questions remain and important epidemiologic methods issues complicate the assessment of this question. I will show some of our own work demonstrating some of these issues, and describe a novel method to assess some of the key aspects of bias that can arise.
