Posted on 22-05-2024


Dr. Montse Marquès is delving into the impacts of harmful chemical exposure on pregnant women, with a focus on endocrine disruptors. This study, currently implemented in Columbia University and funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships, aims to link these exposures to gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Utilizing advanced spectrometry and mathematical models, the project will analyze biological samples from the INSULIN cohort. The final phase includes a pilot prevention program at Joan XXIII Hospital to raise awareness among pregnant women about chemical exposures.
