Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards

As an NIEHS Core Center, we study the effects of environmental exposure on health outcomes.

As a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Core Center, NYU Langone’s Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards, or NYU CIEH, performs fundamental toxicologic and epidemiologic studies with strong focuses on heavy metals, air pollution, and endocrine-disrupting chemicals. That research is translated into policy and practice in order to detect, understand, and prevent environmental hazard–induced human diseases.

Over the past 56 years, we have made fundamental contributions to environmental health sciences, identifying adverse health effects of air pollution and heavy metals, and contributing substantial insights into epigenetic mechanisms underlying carcinogenesis.

Our center sustains international leadership in exposure assessment of air pollution and heavy metals, a productive research portfolio in laboratory studies of heavy metal exposures, and a strong track record of innovative studies of the toxicologic effects of air pollutants. We have effectively translated research regarding the effects of environmental exposures to decision makers and communities, building on the model for translational research elaborated by the NIEHS.

How to Acknowledge the Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards

According to the NIEHS, investigators who use the center’s resources and services are required to “acknowledge NIEHS's full or partial support in journal articles, slide or poster presentations, news releases, interviews with reporters, and other communications. In scientific publications, the citation should include the grant number and the source of the support.”

Please use the following language: "Support for this research was provided by a Core Center grant P30ES000260 from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institutes of Health."
