Center for Child Environmental Health Risks Research


The Center for Child Environmental Health Risks Research works to understand the mechanisms (molecular, genetic, age, exposure and environmental factors) that define children's susceptibility to environmental exposures, identifying the implications of this susceptibility for development and learning, and partnering with our communities to translate our findings into risk communication, risk management and public health prevention strategies.

Core Services Offered

Center Facility Cores include: Biostatistics, Modeling and Risk Characterization (BMRC); Biomarkers and Exposure Assessment (BEA); and Community Outreach and Translation (COTC) which provides linkages between members of the Center and other UW communities in order to support interdisciplinary research in areas improving understanding of the mechanisms defining children's susceptibility to environmental exposures.
