Research Centers

Much of our work in Environmental Health Sciences is focused on the study of human populations exposed to chemical or biological agents in either the community or occupational environments. Faculty in our group are closely involved with epidemiological studies, often developing biological markers (such as slight changes in DNA) that can serve as indicators of human exposure before full-blown disease results. Many of these studies are done in collaboration with other first-rank research institutions in the USA and around the world.
