Jeanette Stingone

Congratulations to Dr. Jeanette Stingone, a postdoctoral fellow who received a K99 award from NIEHS effective July 1, 2017. The objective of the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) is to help outstanding postdoctoral researchers complete needed training and transition to an independent tenure-track or equivalent faculty position. Mentored by multiple faculty within the P30 Center, including Drs. Susan Teitelbaum, Chris Gennings, Ghalib Bello, Luz Claudio and Gaurav Pandey, Dr. Stingone will address the critical research question of how prenatal exposure to air toxics can affect children’s cognitive health. Specifically, her grant focuses on developing analytic approaches that supplement epidemiologic methods with data science and machine learning techniques in order to advance research on combined environmental exposures and children’s health.
