Assistant Professor

Faculty, Environmental Health

Dr. Hu is an Assistant Professor in the Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health at Emory University.  Before joining GDEH, she was an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at Emory School of Medicine, where she remains as an adjunct faculty. Dr. Hu received PhD training in toxicology at University of Iowa and postdoctoral training at Emory University. Her research employs high-resolution mass spectrometry in combination with multiple omics techniques to study molecular mechanisms of environmental impact on human health. Current research projects focus on the adverse effects of prenatal exposure to contaminants in fetal development, specifically, respiratory airway development, and the impact of early-life exposure on later-life lung disease risk. Her team applies molecular and systems biology methods, including integrative omics to take a holistic research approach in addressing the complexity of exposure and biological responses.
