The New England Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Researchers’ Consortium (NE-EDC) brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers in the New England area devoted to studying endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and related health outcomes. There are over 115 NE-EDC members representing more than 25 different institutions, including Boston University, Brown University, United States Environmental Protection Agency, Harvard University, Silent Spring Institute, Tufts University, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Affiliated members from outside New England represent a broad range of institutions, including George Washington University, IPEMED (Brazil), Oregon State University, and University of California, Davis. The primary source of collaboration is the NE-EDC seminar series sponsored by the Organic Chemicals Core of the Harvard-NIEHS Center for Environmental Health. Dr. Russ Hauser, Frederick Lee Hisaw Professor of Reproductive Physiology, is the HSPH faculty leader of the Organics Core. Dr. Ana Soto, of Tufts University, and Dr. Tom Zoeller, of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, co-lead the consortium.
