Environmental and occupational epidemiology investigates the human health impacts of exposures to chemical pollutants and non-chemical stressors in people's homes, workplaces, and communities. Our faculty characterize exposure and health effects of air pollution, metals, pesticides, extreme temperature, phthalates and plasticizers, asbestos, noise and more with funded research programs focused on asthma, autism, and birth outcomes as well as on cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, ovarian aging, dementia, and mortality in midlife and older adults. Our faculty also investigate gene-environment interactions and epigenetics, develop novel statistical methods to study multi-pollutant mixtures, and test the effectiveness of public health interventions.
