Environment Matters: Neuro-Immune Interactions in Development and Implications for Lifelong Health

HSPH NIEHS Center for Environmental Health presents Staci Bilbo, Associate Professor of Pediatrics & Program in Neuroscience, who will give a talk as part of the Re-Envisioning the Environment Colloquium Speaker Series.

Dr. Staci Bilbo is the Director of Research for the Lurie Center for Autism at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. She received her Ph.D. in Psychological and Brain Sciences from Johns Hopkins University in 2003, and continued her training with a postdoctoral fellowship in the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  She directed the Developmental Neuroimmunology Laboratory in the Department of Neuroscience at Duke University from 2007-2016, until joining the faculty at HMS in 2016. Her research is broadly focused on the mechanisms by which the immune and endocrine systems interact with the brain to impact health and behavior. Current research in her laboratory focuses on understanding the consequences of early life events, including infection, stress, environmental toxins, and maternal obesity on neural and immune system development.
