Team 5C will evaluate immunotoxicity (dose-responsive suppression of antigen-specific antibody responses) in mice exposed to PFAS.  

Jamie DeWitt, PhD | ECU

Dr. DeWitt is Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at East Carolina University.  Dr. DeWitt’s lab studies how early life exposure to a variety of agents including environmental contaminants may impact the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems, during development and adulthood. By studying the affects of exposures on the immune system and developing brain, they hope to better understand diseases and disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorders and other conditions believed to be responsive to early-life immune influences.
