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 UK’s business community.
Our research is investigating the health implications of environmental threats such as climate change, chemical pollution and antibiotic resistance. With a broad and interdisciplinary team of academics, we are also exploring the potential health and wellbeing benefits that natural environments might provide.
Working with UK businesses
We work with a range of organisations to create research partnerships that develop knowledge and catalyse innovation. Our collaborations with private and third sector enterprises have led to award-winning studies that deliver benefits to both the UK economy and wider scientific community.
