Personal profile


Scholarly Interests: 

Environmental exposure has increased since the industrial revolution. Exposure to industrial pollutants through mutliple environmental matricies (air, water, food, soil) is now documented at all life stages starting with in utero exposure. Dr. Rubin's research is focused on prevention of chronic disease and the health impacts associated with toxic exposure during the peri-natal and early life periods.

Despite institutional responsibility to address the public health impact of environmental exposure, microenviornmental and dietary changes may present the greatest opportunities for immediate reductions in exposure, particularly for reproductive toxins among reproductive-aged individuals. 

Dr. Rubin's research makes use of (1) dietary and exposure assessment to determine dose ranges among vulnerable populations and (2) educational strategies among reproductive-aged individuals to reduce exposures through micro-enviornmental and dietary matricies.
