CINCINNATI—University of Cincinnati (UC) researcher Scott Belcher, PhD, has received a five-year, $1.68 million dollar grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) to continue his research into the effects of environmental estrogens on the developing brain.
Last year Belcher and his team published two articles in the journal Endocrinology showing that “surprisingly low doses” of the chemical bisphenol A (BPA), widely used in products such as food can linings, milk containers, water pipes and dental sealants, affects developing brain tissue.
Belcher, an associate professor in the department of pharmacology and cell biophysics, says the funding will support his group’s continuing research into the effects of BPA and other plastic compounds on brain development.
