Rosemarie De La Rosa, PhD

Assistant Professor
Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

Dr. de la Rosa is an Environmental Health Scientist with expertise in environmental toxicology and molecular epidemiology, who is passionate about social determinants of health and environmental justice. Her long-term research goal is to understand how the social environment and context during early and middle childhood "gets under the skin” and influences susceptibility to the toxic effects of chemical exposures in low-income communities of color over the life course.
