The Center for Environmental Health Sciences provides a focus for university activities directed towards maintaining and improving the quality of environmental health in Mississippi, the nation and the world. It provides a mechanism for uniting researchers from different Mississippi State University units to work on common problems which require interdisciplinary solutions.
Major disciplines represented are biochemical toxicology, neurotoxicology, pesticide toxicology, analytical chemistry, epidemiology, mixtures toxicology, exposure assessment, mathematical modeling and computational chemistry.
Our goal is to facilitate the development, implementation, and administration of focused and of multi-disciplinary efforts in research, training, and service in the area of environmental health.
One of the primary focus areas in environmental health is discerning the effects of environmentally relevant chemicals on organisms, and conversely, the effects that organisms have on these chemicals.
