The Exposome: Studying the environment on a grand scale
Gary Miller is the Asa Griggs Candler Professor and Associate Dean for Research at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. He also directs the HERCULES Exposome Research Center, which supports exposome-related research in the environmental health sciences. This includes the development and application of sensitive analysis of environmental chemicals using targeted mass spectrometry, untargeted analysis of exogenous and endogenous chemicals using ultra high-resolution metabolomics, and data sciences. Dr. Miller will provide an overview of the center and also discuss his work on environmental drivers of neurodegeneration, which examines the connections between the environment and neuronal function in cellular models, C. elegans, mice, and humans.
