Jo Rochester

Johanna Rochester, PhD

Chief Scientist Officer

Jo has spent the last decade studying how environmental stressors affect hormones and health. She was on the front lines of endocrine disruption research, especially in relation to human exposures and health effects. She has published several scoping and systematic reviews, including a pivotal one on BPA and human health. This review has been cited over 1,000 times, greatly furthering epidemiological BPA research, and was used as the basis for regulation of BPA under California’s Proposition 65. Jo holds an MS and PhD from the University of California, Davis, and did her postdoctoral research at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She then worked at TEDX, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, the foremost non-profit in endocrine disruption research and science translation.
