Our Team

Anne-Claire Binter did her PhD in Public Health and Statistics at the Research Institute on Environmental and Occupational Health (Inserm-Irset) in Rennes (France). She focused on prenatal exposures to solvents and pesticides, and their effects on neurodevelopment. She took advantages of neuroimaging to further investigate the effects of these neurotoxicant and the brain function.

She joined ISGlobal in 2020 as a postdoctoral researcher, investigating the effects of the early-life urban exposome on child's brain development within the ATHLETE cohorts. She is also involved in the PACE, LifeCycle and EUCAN-Connect consortia.
