To protect global populations where they live, work, and grow, the Department of Environmental Health Sciences is steadfastly committed to uncovering the latest knowledge about the environmental issues that shape human health.

People are at the heart of our science. Our cutting-edge research leads the way to sustainable action, as we uncover and address the chemical, biological, physical, and psychosocial stressors shaping human and environmental health. From classroom and laboratory learning to professional leadership, our students, faculty, and staff use their education to advance transformations global and local. They help build healthy cities, design sustainable products, explore the human genome, safeguard workers, and impact public policy—to educate, empower, and improve the health of populations in the US and across the globe.
