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.

                                                                       

Connecting Your World With Your Health

When hundreds of residents of Durham’s McDougald Terrace public housing complex needed answers about how dangerous carbon monoxide levels could make them sick, NC State got the call.
The university’s Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE) worked with Legal Aid of North Carolina to hold information sessions and answer worried residents’ questions about the carbon monoxide, and other toxic substances like mold, that were found in the complex.
