Dr. Holloway's research is focused on examining the mechanisms by which chemical insults in fetal or adult life can cause metabolic endocrine disruption in animal and human populations. The central theme of her current research is to examine how exposure to various chemicals during pregnancy can cause adverse postnatal metabolic outcomes including type 2 diabetes and obesity. The chemicals that are of interest to her laboratory include: chemicals we may intentionally expose ourselves to through lifestyle choices or the use of over the counter natural health products; man-made chemicals present in the environment and naturally occuring chemicals in our diet (e.g. plant phytoestrogens). The majority of the work in her lab at this time focuses on the consequences of fetal and neonatal exposure to consistuents of cigarette smoke and smoking cessation pharmacotherapies.
