Environmental and Global Health

The EGH is a hub of collaboration among University of Florida scientists interested in the effects of environmental factors on human health.

Air, soil, and water factors that threaten health are rarely contained within artificially drawn political borders. Thus, environmental health is global.

It is our goal to explore and examine its global dimensions fully. The Department collaborates extensively with the Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology (CEHT), the Emerging Pathogens Institute (EPI), and the Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience.

About Us

Our Mission

In combination with some of the brightest minds in the field, the Department of Environmental and Global Health has access to the extensive resources within the University of Florida. This puts us in a unique position to apply these resources towards the improvement human health.

In collaboration with the Emerging Pathogens Institute, the Department aims to:
1) Predict disease risk using mathematical modeling
2) Assess environment/gene interactions at a community level
3) Evaluate the health impact of anthropogenic environmental change, including global climate change
4) Develop policy responses to minimize risk from emerging and re-emerging biological threats.
