The Institute of Environmental Medicine
The theme of our Department's research is to understand the environmental causes of disease by investigating which genes, epigenetic programs, and cell signaling pathways influence the processes of disease development. Our Department focuses on several important research areas, including early detection and prevention, health effects of metals and particulate matter, and susceptibility to environmental disease. We strive to build upon our mounting strength in epigenetics by including this as a focus in all aspects of our research.
