Megan M Niedzwiecki, PhD Email Megan Niedzwiecki
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Environmental Medicine & Public Health
Megan Niedzwiecki is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and a member of the Mount Sinai Institute for Exposomic Research and the Transdisciplinary Center on Early Environmental Exposures. She is an environmental and molecular epidemiologist with research interests in the exposome, metabolomics, the health effects of complex metal exposures, and nutritional modulation of toxicant exposures.
Dr. Niedzwiecki investigates the health effects of complex environmental exposures over the lifecourse by incorporating cutting-edge tools to better characterize the exposome, including high-resolution untargeted metabolomics and mass spectrometry imaging. She leads and collaborates on several studies that integrate these tools, including investigating the mechanisms linking time-varying air pollution exposures to maternal and adolescent health, including mental health and cardiometabolic outcomes; the metabolic impacts of arsenic exposure and folic acid supplementation in Bangladesh; metabolomic predictors of birth outcomes in New York and Boston; exposomic characterization of minimally-invasive alternative biospecimens for human cohort studies; and spatial analysis of metal mixture distributions and biological response markers in human tissues.
She received her PhD in Environmental Health Sciences from Columbia University in 2014. Prior to her faculty appointment at Mount Sinai, she completed postdoctoral fellowships in molecular epidemiology and toxicology at the the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the HERCULES Exposome Research Center at Emory University.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Niedzwiecki did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2020 and/or 2021: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
