Our Work

Our unique reproductive health research is extending the frontiers of multidisciplinary women’s health care and professional education. As the only academic center focused on chemical policy, we read the fine print to ensure scientific integrity and health protective policies. And we amplify our work to reduce harmful exposures and promote health equity through education and communications.


PRHE conducts groundbreaking, multi-disciplinary research that answers important questions of how chemicals and contaminants in our homes and environment affect fertility, pregnancy, and fetal and child development.


PRHE identifies and communicates how science should be used in policymaking to protect health and is a leading scientific voice on EPA’s problematic implementation of the updated Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

Education and Communications

PRHE is a leader in connecting the environment to pregnancy, prenatal health, and women’s health and works with major medical organizations to issue guidance on reducing chemical use and preventing harmful exposures.
