Environmental Health Sciences
EHS-Based Centers and Training Grants
The following are Centers and Training Programs that are based in the Environmental Health Sciences Department. They support and facilitate training and research in a wide variety of areas related to environmental and public health.
Center for Occupational Health and Safety Engineering (COHSE)
The University of Michigan Center for Occupational Health and Safety Engineering (COHSE) is a NIOSH Education and Research Center (ERC). The mission of the Center is to serve the region, nation, and world as a center of excellence for research and graduate education in Occupational Health & Safety.
Environmental Toxicology and Epidemiology Training Grant
This program provides predoctoral and postdoctoral research training in the study of the causes and prevention of adverse consequences to human health that may result from environmental exposures. Supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH.
Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Program in Public Health & Aging
The doctoral training program emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary work in public health and aging. Population aging is having a growing impact on public health worldwide and leading to increases in chronic diseases. Understanding the risk factors –environmental, nutritional, lifestyle and societal, along with their associated interactions with potential genetic susceptibility factors---for accelerated aging processes and resulting impacts on chronic disease carries the potential for identifying new opportunities for prevention. Such research requires an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses medicine, social sciences, biology and population approaches.
National Institutes of Health Fogarty International Center
The Fogarty International Center is dedicated to advancing the mission of the National Institutes of Health by supporting and facilitating global health research conducted by U.S. and international investigators, building partnerships between health research institutions in the U.S. and abroad, and training the next generation of scientists to address global health needs.
University of Michigan Formative Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Center
The University of Michigan Formative Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Center (UM-CEHC) is conducting research on how exposure to heavy metals and toxic substances in everyday life may impact your child's health and may increase their risk of adult chronic diseases. The Center is a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan, School of Public Health and Instituto Nacional de Salud Publica in Mexico.
