Environmental Health, Toxicology, Metabolics

Globe in hand

As the needs of a growing global population interface with increasingly limited resources and strained ecosystems, environmental health protection is one of the dominant themes of the 21st century. At the Yale School of Public Health, our faculty and students use state-of-the-art approaches to monitor environmental exposures, evaluate health risks, discern toxicological mechanisms and design more environmentally-friendly products. Our facilities are using ground-breaking research methods, such as metabolomics, personal sensors for monitoring environmental exposures, and analyses of chemical mixtures and the “exposome.”
