Michael S. Bloom is an Associate Professor of Environmental Health Sciences and Epidemiology and Biostatistics, and a Faculty Associate of the Center for Social and Demographic Analysis (CSDA).

Bloom conducts epidemiologic research into the adverse effects of widely distributed environmental pollutants (toxic metals, chemical compounds used in plastics and personal care products, persistent industrial chemicals, etc.) on human reproduction, including infertility, pregnancy loss, women’s reproductive health, and birth outcomes.

He has extensive experience investigating the impact of environmental pollutants on in vitro fertilization (IVF), as well as in elucidating the effects of maternal exposures on fetal development. Bloom’s work has been supported by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and he is the recipient of Fulbright Scholar (Romania) and Foreign High End Expert (China) awards to support international research and teaching activities.

He received his Ph.D. from the University at Buffalo, SUNY and completed postdoctoral training at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
