CCHP fosters inter-disciplinary research and teaching on the human health dimensions of climate change. Students explore climate-related impacts from pollution, heat, disease vectors, food insecurity, and others, as well as the health benefits of climate mitigation actions.
The Center works to identify and understand environmental exposures contributing to the pathophysiology of human disease. Research on air toxics, life course exposures, epigenetics and climate and health involves community partners to translate findings into health benefits.
Considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be “the largest mass poisoning in history,” the Superfund Program investigates the health effects, geochemistry, and remediation of naturally occurring arsenic, with a particular focus on groundwater.
The Program to Inspire Minority Undergraduates in Environmental Health Science Research (PrIMER) provides opportunities for minority undergraduate science students to learn about research in environmental health.
