Environment, Climate and Health

Theme Leader

Our research examines how environmental exposures affect health and disease. The three main prongs of our work are represented by our research programs: environmental epidemiology, with a particular focus on the health risks and benefits of sun exposure, particularly for disorders of immune function; mapping health and disease in relation to environmental factors to discover new links and build predictive models for disease risks; and ongoing research on the risks to health of global climate change and the role that health has to play in climate change advocacy.
