NIEHS grantees Brenda Eskenazi, Ph.D., and Bruce Lanphear, M.D., took top honors at the 24th Annual Conference of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE) Aug. 26-30 in Columbia, S.C.
During an awards plenary Aug. 29, members honored Lanphear with the ISEE Research Integrity Award and Eskenazi with the ISEE John Goldsmith Award for Outstanding Contributions to Environmental Epidemiology, the highest awards that ISEE gives to scientists in the field of environmental epidemiology. Eskenazi and Lanphear gave talks on their research as a part of the ceremony.
Eskenazi and Lanphear have worked for many years at the intersection of public health and environmental justice — Lanphear with inner city children exposed to lead in the environment, and Eskenazi with families exposed at work and at home to endocrine disrupting chemicals used in pesticides and flame retardants.
