Anna Pollack, PhD, MPH
George Mason University (USA)
Anna Pollack is an Associate Professor in the department of Global and Community Health at George Mason University. Her research focuses on the relationship between environmental chemical exposures and gynecologic health. Critical to understanding these endpoints, she investigates biological mechanisms underlying these processes, such as biomarkers of oxidative stress, inflammation, and endocrine disruption.
Dr. Pollack’s research addresses disparities in exposure, which stem from environmental and occupational sources. She seeks to apply methods to examine complex mixtures to better understand their impact on women’s reproductive health. Prior to joining George Mason University in 2013, Dr. Pollack trained in reproductive and environmental epidemiology, and epidemiologic methods. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. She received her PhD in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University, MPH in environmental and occupational health from George Washington University, and BA in biology from Smith College.
