CEHS has evolved from relying on fixed research cores with specific members interested in particular types of susceptibilities or methods, to our present organization employing Flexible Interdisciplinary Research Groups (FIRGs), which is an innovative approach to achieving the greatest possible synergy among researchers.
The FIRGs evolve based on three main factors: the advancement of knowledge that better explains the complex interactions between environmental factors and the pathogenesis of human disease, improvements in scientific expertise and technical resources, and availability of new funding.
