Jorge E. Chavarro, M.D., Sc.D., is Associate Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health and of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Chavarro’s research is focused on understanding how nutrition and lifestyle impact human reproduction from pre-conception and throughout the life course. Currently, this effort is concentrated in two fronts.

In addition, he studies how nutrition and lifestyle impact health during pregnancy and how this impacts the health of mother and child after birth. In addition to his work with the Nurses’ Health Study 3, Dr. Chavarro leads the nutritional component of the EARTH Study, an ongoing prospective cohort of couples undergoing infertility treatment at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
