Dr. Laiosa has a primary interest in understanding why the prevalence of childhood diseases of the immune system such as leukemia, autoimmunity, and atopy are all on the rise in recent decades. Long-term research plans are centered on translating how early life exposures adversely affect immune system development and function later in life with specific emphasis on:
- Identifying developmental/early life environmental factors which influence cancer risks and autoimmune pathogenesis.
- Identifying pre- and early post-natal chemopreventative agents which may reduce risk for developing diseases such as leukemia, atopy, and autoimmune disease.
- Determine the impact of early life exposures to chemical mixtures on long term immunological health outcomes.
