for Occupational Safety and Health
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Lesliam Quiros-Alcala to the Department! Her work to date has focused on exploring the impact of exposure to chemicals, antimicrobial and endocrine disrupting compounds in personal care products, on disease risks in vulnerable populations.
Please submit your pilot project proposals by November 8, 2019! Awards up to $15,000 for January 2020 - June 2021. The objective of this program is to enhance occupational research training through direct support of research activities.
Congratulations to our Director of the Continuing Education Program, Mary Doyle, for being named a member of the NIOSH Board of Scientific Counselors, a federal advisory committee assembled to provide independent advice and guidance to the Director of NIOSH.
The certificate program educates and trains students to identify major environmental health issues facing public health professionals today. Courses explore many different relevant topics.
The ERC offers funding for doctoral students interested in occupational and environmental health in a collaborative and multidisciplinary setting. Programs include medicine, nursing, industrial hygiene, biomarkers, injury prevention and epidemiology.
Congratulations to LT Matt Lindsley, a graduate of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and alumnus of our ERC OEHN Program!

The Johns Hopkins Education and Research Center (ERC) for Occupational Safety and Health provides an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to training researchers and practitioners in the field of occupational safety and health with the ultimate goal of protecting the safety and health of all workers.
This center is sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and includes five academic programs in the areas of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene, Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing, Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Occupational Epidemiology and Biomarkers, and Occupational Injury Epidemiology and Prevention. In addition, our Pilot Project Research Training Program supports students and junior faculty at research institutions within our region, while our Continuing Education and Outreach components bring the strengths of the core ERC programs to practicing occupational safety and health professionals throughout our region and beyond.
