Abstract

Disorders of sexual development are amongst the most common birth defects in humans. These conditions have profound consequences for the physical and psychological health of affected individuals. The incidence of these disorders is on the rise, and this has been linked to our increased exposure to chemicals in the environment that affect how our hormones function. This project will investigate how these chemicals affect hormonal pathways that control early development.
