His work on the recognition of new human teratogens is primarily focused through MotherToBaby California, a counseling and research program funded in part by the state of California and monies received from the Organization of Teratology Information Specialists (OTIS) as a part of a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
