Dr. Beth Mueller is a cancer and reproductive health epidemiologist whose research interests include maternal and child health, and environmental and occupational cancer risk factors. Specifically, she studies the roles of maternal, gestational and early environmental exposures on the occurrence of childhood cancer, autoimmune diseases, fetal death, low birth weight and preterm delivery. She also studies the impact of reproductive history in relation to cancer and cancer survival in women. For example, she led a study that found breast cancer patients under age 45 who subsequently bear children are no more likely to die of their disease than patients who do not give birth. She also studies reproductive outcomes among male and female childhood cancer survivors.
