The Center for Environmental Health and Susceptibility (CEHS) is part of one of the most critical public health efforts in history, investigating environmental exposures and their effects on human health. Never has our environment impacted our health as it does today.
Our Center brings together environmental exposure researchers and provides shared resources to identify emerging issues that help our understanding about how environmental pollutants affect human biology and may cause disease. Our goals are 1) to disseminate knowledge and technology across interdisciplinary groups of researchers in environmental health, 2) to foster translational research and outreach, and 3) to respond to emerging environmental threats facing North Carolinians and the nation.
We invite you to find out more about our important work and to contact me if you would like to get involved in our efforts to facilitate environmental exposure research.
