Environmental Toxicology and Epidemiology

Cancer, infertility, and ALS: How do contaminants and environmental factors affect the human reproductive, immune, and neurological systems? What role do stress and genetics play in the development of diseases?

Epidemiological research identifies harmful and beneficial health factor s — e.g., work environment, lifestyle habits, genetic susceptibility — and sheds light on the etiology of certain cancers and other chronic diseases, infections, and immune disorders.

Our research teams are studying various xenobiotics known to cause health problems or environmental contamination. The objective is to understand their effects on the human body. Our teams are also investigating how lifestyle habits, the environment, and genetic factors are connected to various pathologies.
