I am the Principal Investigator on the DES Follow-up Study at the Tufts Medical Center Study site. The DES Follow-up Study is a multi-center study has been following women and men who were and were not prenatally exposed to Diethylstilbestrol (DES) for adverse health effects since 1975. I am also interested in recently developed epidemiologic methodologies for studying the safety and efficacy of drug and medical devices.
