We are a multidisciplinary team working with researchers from disciplines across the University and externally. Partnering with Public Health England (PHE), the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and the Leicester Biomedical Research Centre ensures our research in basic and translational science, and epidemiology, leads to changes in practice that improve public and patient health.
We focus on making a difference locally and internationally as well as developing the next generation of leading scientists in environmental health through training early career researchers and through high quality research-led teaching.
Low-level environmental exposures such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and metals
CEHS is developing research projects into health effects of other pollutants in the environment. These include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), that are part of indoor and outdoor air pollution and metals that can be found in soils and dust. This work is being carried forward through Health Research (NIHR) national Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) in Environmental Exposures and Health at the University of Leicester, working in partnership with PHE and the Health & Safety Executive
