About the Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards Members

Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards Members

Primary (full) members of NYU Langone’s Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards must have environmental health sciences (EHS) research funding that has supported 20 percent or more of their research time over the last 2 years from the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or a private foundation.

The broader scope of eligible funding sources reflects the exciting and new reality that clinical and translational sciences paradigms are integrating into EHS. To encourage clinical investigators to explore EHS research, we offer two-year associate memberships that permit greater interaction with primary members.

Primary and associate membership is reviewed every year. Center members who no longer devote substantial research effort to EHS are removed from primary membership. Associate members may be promoted to full membership if they have obtained federal or private foundation funding for EHS research.

We also require a minimum annual contribution of 10 hours to center events and use log books to identify inactive members, encouraging those with low participation to re-engage.
