The European Centre for Environment & Human Health
The Centre conducts world-class research into the complex links between the environment and human health. Part of the University of Exeter Medical School and supported by funding from the European Union, we’re analysing both the risks and benefits the environment poses to health, and ensuring our findings have relevance to the Cornish business community.
We’re investigating the health implications posed by a range of environmental threats, from climate change and chemical pollutants, to antibiotic resistance. Incorporating a diverse set of specialisms, our researchers are also exploring the benefits to health and wellbeing that time spent in the natural environment can offer.
Working with Cornish business
Through applied research the University of Exeter Medical School is collaborating with local businesses to aid innovation and help increase productivity. Our partnerships are creating new knowledge that will be of direct benefit to both the Cornish economy and wider scientific community.
