Dr. Fenton's current research is designed to understand mechanisms underlying the effects of early life exposures that lead to persistent changes in breast tissue and enhance disease susceptibility over one's lifetime. She focuses on increasing information on which environmental factors affect things such as breast development during puberty and its relationship to mammary tumor risk and children's health, as it pertains to chemical exposure via breast milk.
