GIS Research

The Exposure, Epidemiology and Risk Program (EER) within the Department of Environmental Health at HSPH includes staff researchers, doctoral students and faculty who are actively using GIS in their work.

EER is home to the Harvard Clean Air Research Center (CLARC) which investigates the acute and chronic health effects across life stages of six air pollution exposure metrics on: cognitive/neuropsychological function, cardiovascular/endothelial function, inflammation, birth weight/growth, and CVD-related hospitalization/mortality.

HSPH is also home to the Harvard NIEHS Center for Environmental Health.  This center’s Environmental Statistics and Bioinformatics core provides GIS and spatial statistics support.
