Description

Dr. Cheryl Lyn Walker is the Director of the Center for Precision Environmental Health at Baylor College of Medicine, where she holds the Alkek Presidential Chair in Environmental Health and is a Professor in the Departments of Molecular & Cell Biology and Medicine. Dr. Walker is an international leader in environmental health, and  elucidating molecular mechanisms of disease.  Her studies on the role of the epigenome in gene-environment interactions have yielded signifiant insights into mechanisms by which early life exposures influence health and disease across the lifecourse.  Her work has also led to the discovery of a dual role for the cell’s epigenetic machinery in remodeling both chromatin and the cytoskeleton.
