Thematic Focus Areas

CTEHR Themes foster integration and interdisciplinary collaboration among our outstanding group of investigators with shared interests in environmental stressors, modifiers of response and human health and disease.






Our Facility Cores

The cores provide an infrastructure capable of supporting Hypothesis Generation, Hypothesis Testing studies and those that Translate into practice the concepts generated by the Center's researchers. These cores aim to foster integration, coordination, and interdisciplinary cooperation among investigators and trainees at various stages of professional development, conducting high-quality research related to the effects of environmental factors on human health.
