Who We Are
Who We Are
Our Department integrates diverse disciplines in a quest to discover, disseminate and apply new knowledge critical to understanding and mitigating the impact of the natural, built and social environments on human health.
Access to Healthy Food
Access to Healthy Food
Access to nutritious, safe food is not a given in many communities around the world. Faculty and students in the Department work towards development and implementation of more sustainable methods of food production and consumption.
Reducing the Global Health Impact of Air Pollutants
Reducing the Global Health Impact of Air Pollutants
Exposure to airborne toxicants in communities around the globe can result in the development of cardiorespiratory disease. Our research is focused on determining the impact of air pollution on human health and developing innovative solutions to ameliorate their effects.
Solving Global Water Challenges
Solving Global Water Challenges
Access to clean water remains one of the most pressing environmental problems facing global communities. We work towards developing and evaluating strategies to keeping this essential resource safe to drink and use in our daily lives both locally and abroad.
Influencing Public Health Policy
Influencing Public Health Policy
Our multidisciplinary graduate programs educate professionals for careers in research, practice, education and policy development. Our training programs emphasize the skills necessary for the development of regulatory frameworks and policy implementation.
Global Environmental Change & Human Health
Global Environmental Change & Human Health
Human population growth, and the methods by which we produce energy and food are causing dramatic environmental changes. These changes are likely to have a major impact on human health.
Environmental Determinants of Chronic Inflammatory Disorders
Environmental Determinants of Chronic Inflammatory Disorders
Exposures to environmental stressors have led to increased disease burden (cancer, respiratory, cardiovascular, obesity). Discovering the basic molecular, cellular, and epigenetic mechanisms of these diseases is an important part of our work.
Multidisciplinary Education & Training Opportunities
Multidisciplinary Education & Training Opportunities
Our cross-disciplinary programs prepare students to translate scientific findings into public health interventions and provide the tools needed to address environmental health challenges around the globe.
