Julie Herbstman, PhD

Julie Herbstman, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences. Trained as an epidemiologist, Dr. Herbstman’s research focuses on the impact of prenatal exposures to environmental pollutants, including polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) on child growth and development. She has also been involved in research exploring the long-term environmental health impact of exposure to pollutants from the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9/11. She collaborates on the Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health’s work involving the integration of epigenetic biomarkers to explore the mechanistic pathway between prenatal exposures and disease risk.
