2. Undernutrition in pregnancy and health disorders of fetus and path of growth of infants in early life.
3. Effect of prenatal and early postnatal exposure to ambient and indoor pollutants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, particulate matter, and environmental tobacco smoke on fetal and child growth.
4. Variations in expression of xenobiotic metabolism during development and early life. The susceptibility of the fetus in different ways to the same exposure dependent on period of exposure.
5. Neurobehavioral development, and childhood health status related to prenatal exposure to environmental hazards.
6. The use of biomarkers in screening for early detection and treatment of health disorders in infants.
7. Carcinogenesis and early life exposures (with examples from animal models and human data).
8. New public health policy programs aiming at improving fetal nutrition and reducing ambiental hazards.
