Determine the risk of fetal loss associated with single exposures and exposure mixtures, and then the population burden of fetal loss attributable to environmental exposures. ...more »

Treatments to promote long-term weight loss (e.g. behavioral, pharmacological, surgical) are often not successful and result in high variability across individuals. Measurement of potential predictors from multiple domains (behavioral, biological, environmental, and psychosocial) can help identify the factors that best predict success in response to intentional weight ...more »
