Research and Service: Global, Environmental, and Occupational Health

The research, education and service initiatives in the Department of Global, Environmental, and Occupational Health engage a diverse range of subdisciplines of environmental health science. Our faculty, students and staff carry out cutting-edge research in areas ranging from infectious disease transmission and food and waterborne disease to environmental justice, cumulative risk assessment, and the impacts of climate change on human health and vulnerable communities. Our projects are highly interdisciplinary by nature and include collaborative partnerships with researchers on campus and around the world. Our research is also highly applied, providing decision-makers, communities and the public at large with critical information to protect environmental and human health.
