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.
