One of our papers recently received an honorable mention for Best Environmental Epidemiology Paper of the Year by the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE). The paper suggests that prenatal exposure to insecticides used for indoor residual spraying may be associated with altered child neurodevelopment. The award was presented to Drs. Chevrier, Eskenazi and Bornman at the ISEE conference held August 25-28, 2019 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
