HSPH is helping propel the growing study of how genes and environmental forces interact to cause disease—from diabetes to asthma to the afflictions of aging.
Genes and environment initiative launched
The initiative is designed to bring together several areas of traditional excellence HSPH — environmental health research, population science, quantitative methods, and basic science — to better understand the combined effects of genetic and environmental factors on human health.
