EOH Seminar Series

Upcoming EOH Seminars

Learning from our students/staff/faculty, nationally and internationally known scientists, practitioners and policymakers on issues of environmental, occupational and public health

EOH Seminar Series takes place every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month from 1:00pm – 2:00p.m. Through presentations and discussions, we aim to highlight the latest cutting-edge environmental health science research, promote public health, and enhance multidisciplinary collaborations between medical, public health specialists and community.  Moreover, we would like to highlight research from young investigators and our EOH students and fellows. In additional to topics of environmental and occupational health exposures, we will have presentations about social justice and diversity, women and children health, neurological disorders, cell metabolism and stem cells, metal toxicity, respiratory biology, redox biology, microbiology and host defense, and environmental epigenetics. Please stay-tuned! 

We will hold “hybrid” meetings, which will meet our speaker in person (GSPH) and also allow for virtual participation (via Zoom).
