Mission

Beach Clean Up 2017

The Department coordinated an International Beach Clean Up Day 2017 at Jacobs Beach, Guilford, CT.

The mission of the Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) Department at the Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) is to advance scientific knowledge about the connections between environment and health through: 

  • Research in the fields of environmental epidemiology, molecular toxicology, exposure science, risk assessment, biomarkers, epigenetics, and gene-environment interactions. 
  • Education of the next generation of scientists and public health leaders that can design science-based solutions for and explain current and future environmental health challenges. 
Our multidisciplinary research involves collaborations from across YSPH, throughout Yale University, and around the world. Our faculty is committed to training EHS students and fellows who are a central focus of the EHS teaching and research activities.
