An Interdisciplinary Center with a Diverse Approach
We seek to understand how human health is impacted by environmental factors and how to reduce adverse impacts.
At CHHE, we apply a systems biology approach, spanning biomolecules to human populations, to understand how environmental stressors impact human health. Our goal is to uncover the underlying mechanisms of disease and use this knowledge to mitigate adverse health outcomes.
CHHE: 100 strong, representing 3 Universities
We bring together 57 grant seeking faculty from 17 departments and 7 colleges at NC State, as well as 9 faculty from East Carolina’s Brody School of Medicine and 7 faculty from NC Central, in addition to our associate and advisory members and amazing staff.
