Jay S. Schneider, PhD

Professor | Thomas Jefferson University

Jay S. Schneider is Professor of Pathology, Anatomy and Cell Biology at Thomas Jefferson University. Jay conducts both basic and clinical research and his research focuses on the effects of lead on brain development and function.

Jay’s research projects examine effects of developmental lead exposure on epigenetic processes and transcriptional regulation as well as the influence of variables including gender, quality of maternal care and quality of the early life environment as modifiers of the effects of lead on the brain and behavior. Previous clinical work helped to define the role played by neuropsychological testing for designing specific intervention strategies to improve educational outcomes for lead-poisoned children.
