Dr. Anne Marie Jukic is a perinatal epidemiologist whose research spans the perinatal period, from pre-conception, to pregnancy, to pregnancy outcomes and child health. She is interested in early pregnancy, particularly implantation and early placental development, and the relevance of these events for pregnancy health or child health. Her current research focuses on the role of vitamin D in reproduction, and she has published the first papers describing a link between vitamin D and menstrual cycle function in community-based samples of women. Her other work includes investigating environmental exposures (such as phthalates and phenols), other nutritional exposures, and physical activity. After completing a Bachelor's degree at the University of Notre Dame she joined the Peace Corps where she developed an interest in public health. During her graduate work at Emory University she trained at the Centers for Disease Control in the Safe Motherhood Branch. She continued her graduate studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she completed her doctoral dissertation examining physical activity during pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).
