Center for Environmental Health
Director: James E. Klaunig, Ph.D.
The mission of the Indiana University Center for Environmental Health is to foster excellence in scientific research, training, and outreach in environmental health with a goal of identifying, understanding and preventing environmentally related diseases covering the human life span. Locally, environmentally driven human disease costs the State of Indiana jobs and potential revenue, and negatively impacts the quality of life and the economy of the State. The IU School of Medicine and IUPUI campus provide an ideal setting for coordinated effort in Environmental Health Sciences. The combination of academic health science research, environmental research, county and state public health programs, state environmental programs, information technology, and centers for environmental policy and earth and environmental science are all located on or near the IUPUI campus. Thus this location provides an excellent geographic and philosophical template to foster understanding and improving human health and the environment. The goal of the Center is to be a nationally and internationally recognized center for Environmental Health.
