Pacific Northwest Center for Human Health and Ocean Studies
The Pacific Northwest Center for Human Health and Ocean Studies was created to understand links between ocean processes and human health. Center researchers investigate how environmental conditions trigger blooms of harmful algae in our marine waters, and how these blooms impact public health. Center research is based on the premise that genetic and environmental variability defines the toxicity and dynamics of harmful algal blooms, the retention of toxin by shellfish, and the susceptibility of human populations to toxicological impacts.
