Sex Differences in the Developing Brain; the Role of Environmental Exposures

This program will be of interest to researchers, clinicians, and students interested in understanding the role of sex differences and the impacts of environmental exposures on neurodevelopmental disorders in males and females, including ADHD and autism.

This program is almost at capacity.

Lunch will be served. Registration is required. 

This workshop was developed through the Mount Sinai Institute for Exposomic Research with support from the Transdisciplinary Center on Early Environmental Exposures (, NIEHS grant P30ES023515). The P30 Center is the core of the Institute’s research, bringing together researchers and clinicians from many disparate areas of expertise and training—exposure scientists, chemists, social scientists, epigeneticists, data scientists, and many others, to study the exposome, or the totality of our environmental exposures in a lifetime and how those exposures relate to health, disease, and development. We aim to translate those findings into new strategies for prevention and treatment. 

Sponsored by NIEHS EHS Core Center P30ES023515 and CTSA UL1TR001433
