CHHE’s mission is to understand how human health, at both the individual and population level, is impacted by environmental factors and to implement this knowledge to reduce the adverse impacts of environmental factors on human health. 

Through the purposeful interfacing of different disciplines and a systems biology framework integrating all levels of biological organization – biomolecule, pathway, cell, tissue, organ, model organism, human, and human population –  CHHE will elucidate fundamental mechanisms through which environmental stressors interface with pathways, the genome, and epigenome to influence human disease and produce adverse human health outcomes.                                                                      

CHHE Support and Services – “Find Out Fridays”

“Find Out Fridays” is a CHHE weekly Zoom event at noon each Friday (starting 10/7/20) for the next ~3 months. The purpose of these sessions are to provide CHHE members and their groups with an overview of each of the CHHE services and provide time for questions/discussion.Each Friday at noon, a CHHE Leader/Navigator/Core Director will provide a 10 minute overview of the capabilities/support/services of their core/core section. This will be followed by a 15-20 minute Q&A/discussion session. Please invite your graduate students, postdocs and technicians. You and your group are invited to attend all sessions or just those sessions of interest; bring your questions!

We have also sprinkled in three Friday noon Zoom 1 hour seminars; two sponsored by CHHE RIGS and the other being the kick off presentation for the CHHE’s 5th Annual Symposium entitled “Celebrating the CHHE”. This symposium is unconventional as individual speakers will be spread out over the Spring Semester and CHHE Symposium will sponsor 4-6 speaker events (both internal and external speakers). The first Symposium Speaker on Jan 15 will be Dr. Rick Woychik, the new Director of NIEHS/NTP and Chancellor Randy Woodson will provide opening remarks.
