Director's welcome

Now in its 23rd year, the EHSRC is advancing environmental health science with innovative research in Nanotoxicology, Environmental Lung Disease, Inflammation and Innate Immunity and Oxidative Stress and Metabolism. With renewed funding through 2017 from the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and headquarters in the just-completed College of Public Health Building we anticipate an exciting future.

Our membership has grown to 65 faculty Members and Associate Members, who are engaged in the Center’s three Research Facilities, the Environmental Modeling and Exposure Assessment Facility (EMEAF), the Integrative Health Sciences Facility (IHSF), and the Pulmonary Toxicology Facility (PTF). Our members have also been important partners in our Career Development activities and in the EHSRC Pilot Grant Program. Our Community Outreach and Engagement activities have also expanded. We reach out to rural populations who face significant, unaddressed environmental health concerns, in collaboration with universities, governmental agencies, NGOs and community groups. I invite you to explore our website and I welcome your comments.
