Associate Professor, Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences, Utrecht University
Ulrike Gehring obtained an MS in statistics from the University of Dortmund, Germany, in 1998 and a PhD in environmental epidemiology from the Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich, Germany, in 2004. Her research focuses on environmental impacts on child health, with a special focus on long-term health effects of ambient air pollution and determinants of asthma and allergies. She is co-principal investigator of the Dutch PIAMA (Prevention and Incidence of Asthma and Mite Allergy) birth cohort study. PIAMA and other birth cohorts play an important role in her research and allow her to investigate exposure–health relationships through different stages of life. Gehring is actively involved in the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology and a current member of the Environment and Health Committee of the European Respiratory Society. She is an associate editor of Environmental Health Perspectives.
