The CIEHS is an NIEHS funded research center dedicated to understanding the complexities of and to integrate the interactions between environmental toxicants, lifestyle factors, life stage, genetics and gender and their roles in human health and disease. The CIEHS' goal is enabled by research support from the Integrated Health Science Facility Core (IHSFC) and the Integrated Toxicomics & Environmental Measurement Facility Core (ITEMFC). Environmental health sciences (EHS) researchers receiving support from IHSFC or ITEMFC will provide a 12 minute presentation highlighting their research associated with these enabling awards.
