Looking for a new way to connect with CHHE members?  Try the CHHE interest groups.
We’ve created six cross-cutting interest groups for CHHE members to get involved with.  Join one or more to get involved.

Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Group:  This group will bring together scientists across the Research Triangle Area to focus on issues related to studies of endocrine disrupting chemicals across species.  Goals include enhancing collaborative research, and improving outreach and communication related to EDCs.

Group Leaders: Jerry Heindel, jerryheindel@gmail.com
Carol Kwiatkowski, carolkw@tedx.org

The Environmental Epigenetics Interest Group will build a community of faculty, staff and students interested in the mechanisms and consequences of interactions between the environment and the epigenome. We will discuss current trends, exchange ideas, share technical knowledge, and foster collaborations with the goal of addressing outstanding questions in the field.

Group leaders: David Aylor, dlaylor@ncsu.edu
Mike Cowley, macowley@ncsu.edu

Neuroscience Group: This group will focus on questions and activities related to neurodevelopment and neurotoxicology.  Goals include coordinating research efforts, increasing grant submissions, enhancing our presence at the Society for Neuroscience meeting and working towards becoming nationally recognized as having strength in “Environmental Neuroscience.”

Group Leader: Heather Patisaul, hbpatisa@ncsu.edu

Pulmonary Interest Group:  The Pulmonary interest group will work to establish collaborations between basic and translational scientists and clinicians that are interested in understanding mechanisms behind environmental exposures and lung diseases.  This group will hold meetings at both NCSU and ECU to facilitate exchange of ideas and expertise that will result in interdisciplinary groups that can apply for external funding opportunities.

Group Leaders: Kym Gowdy (ECU) gowdyk14@ecu.edu
Jane Hoppin (NCSU) jahoppin@ncsu.edu

Zebrafish Group:  The Zebrafish Interest Group will provide a forum for facilitating interactions and collaborations among researchers with an interest in zebrafish work.

Group Leader: Heather Shive, hrshive@ncsu.edu
