Our Research

Environmental Health Sciences faculty educate, challenge, mentor, and inspire tomorrow’s leaders in environmental health. Our faculty have internationally recognized expertise in addressing pressing global challenges in health and the environment, including through the design and conduct of environmental epidemiological studies; the development of biological markers (such as changes in DNA) that can serve as indicators of human exposure to environmental contaminants; the estimation of the burden of disease attributable to environmental factors; and the projection of the health of populations in the face of environmental change. Our research projects in key areas of emphasis are further strengthened by collaborations with world-class faculty across the UC Berkeley campus, as well as through partnerships with other top research institutions in the US and around the world. Our research activities are organized into high-impact research centers and initiatives, including:
