Our outreach programs for researchers enable the dissemination of current research findings to the broader academic community and provide opportunities for environmental health researchers to learn new skills, network with peers, and collaborate on publications.
An interdisciplinary group of researchers in the New England area devoted to studying endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and related health outcomes.
Informal lectures designed to introduce researchers to the basic “language” used in the study of different environmental contaminants.
3-part seminar series co sponsored by the Center, designed to disseminate research findings in occupational and environmental health and safety.
Training specifically geared to Environmental Health researchers on Harvard WorldMap, a versatile tool for exploring, visualizing, editing, sharing and publishing geospatial information
New England Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Researchers’ Consortium (NE-EDC)
The New England Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Researchers’ Consortium (NE-EDC) brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers in the New England area devoted to studying endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and related health outcomes. There are over 115 NE-EDC members representing more than 25 different institutions, including Boston University, Brown University, United States Environmental Protection Agency, Harvard University, Silent Spring Institute, Tufts University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Please visit the NE-EDC Website for more information about this collaboration between the Organic Chemicals Research Core and the COEC.
- For a listing of upcoming NE-EDC events, see the Center Events Calendar (use pulldown menu at far right of calendar to limit search to NE-EDC) or the NE-EDC website’s Upcoming Events page. Please note that seminars are generally open to the public; however, NE-EDC members are given priority. If you are not an NE-EDC member and wish to attend, please RSVP to Madeleine Straubel at email@example.com to request a seat and a visitor pass if needed.

Seminars in Occupational & Environmental Health
This 3-part seminar series is designed to disseminate research findings in occupational and environmental health and safety.
Monday ERC Seminars are delivered by invited external practicing experts,
Friday Research Seminars are delivered by HSPH doctoral and postdoctoral students, and
Friday Grand Rounds are delivered by HSPH resident physicians and HSPH or external expert physicians.
- For upcoming seminars, see our Events Calendar. For additional details about the seminars, click here.

(Seminars are co-sponsored by the Harvard-NIEHS Center for Environmental Health -P30 ES000002, Harvard-NIOSH Education and Research Center -T42 OH008416, the Environmental and Occupational Medicine and Epidemiology Program, the Department of Environmental Health, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.)
Harvard WorldMap for Environmental Health Scientists
Harvard WorldMap is a versatile tool for exploring, visualizing, editing, and publishing geospatial information. It is designed to promote collaboration among researchers and communities with similar interests using data that has geospatial characteristics. The WorldMap platform is being developed by the Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis (CGA) and is Open Source software.
The Harvard NIEHS Center supports training on the use of Harvard WorldMap geared specifically to Environmental Health researchers. Past training sessions have focused on use of Harvard WorldMap to share and explore hydrofracking data. We are currently collaborating with the UPENN NIEHS Center for Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET) in creating a general nexus for hydrofracking data using the Harvard WorldMap.
