Overview

With joint appointments both at the Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women s Hospital as well as the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, Dr. Minguez-Alarcon s research focuses on identifying chemical and non-chemical stressors of human fertility, reproductive and cardiometabolic health. She is also evaluating fertility measures as predictors of long-term health. As an environmental and reproductive epidemiologist, she is primarily working in the EARTH Study, a prospective cohort study of subfertile couples at the MGH fertility center in Boston. She is also an active collaborator in the Russian Children s Study, PEACE Study, Project Viva, NHS2, NHS3 and VDAART. Dr. Mínguez-Alarcón is the PI of the recently NIH funded Longitudinal Investigation of Health and Diseases after Infertility (LIHDI) Study, which will re-enroll former female EARTH participants to assess their health at midlife. She will prospectively explore chemical exposures during reproductive years in relation to long-term cardiovascular and metabolic health and whether fertility measures mediate the associations. She brings her expertise to the Science of the Total Environment (STOTEN) journal as an Associate Editor.
