Dr. Jesse Goodrich is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Environmental Health at the University of Southern California. His research combines data on environmental exposures with information on molecular-level biological processes to understand the effects of environmental pollutants on the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. He is particularly interested in examining these questions in children and adolescents because they may be more susceptible to the adverse health effects of environmental pollutants.

EH MATTERS Internship Description: In my lab, EH MATTERs interns will gain experience with studying how environmental pollutants impact human health, particularly in relation to PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) exposure and cancer risks. Through hands on data analysis, students will have the opportunity to help perform research on toxic substances using cutting-edge analytical tools. Students will also assist in conducting comprehensive literature reviews to synthesize existing research findings. The experience will provide a hands-on introduction to environmental health research.
