I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. My principal effort is in translational research, with a focus on metabolomic epidemiology and integrative -omics. I have a particular interest in the mechanisms of early life exposures and how these may influence the risk of common complex diseases in later life.

  5. W81XWH-17-1-0533 (Rachel Kelly) Sep 15, 2017 - Mar 14, 2019
    Metabolomics of lead exposure and its role in respiratory disease
    Role Description: Military service personnel and Veterans suffer disproportionately from poor lung health. The aim of this project was to use blood based metabolomic profiling of a large, well-characterized population of Veterans with comprehensive clinical and environmental exposure measurements, to understand and quantify how Pb exposure during active service affects respiratory health in those who have served in the military.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
