Strength in Numbers

A variety of off-site locations form the basis of the Center's community research partnerships. The strength of this multi-layered Center is found in the high level of collaborative science that is accomplished by our members.


Facility Cores

The Center supports research on the environmental roots of neurobehavioral diseases, cardiovascular birth defects, and reproductive dysfunctions in relation to signal transduction / endocrine disruption, oxidative stress and genomic variability.  Research and outreach related to fresh water, the Great Lakes and children's heath serve as additional integrative and productive work of the Center. 

Among the ways the Center supports scientists is through the provision of specialized facility cores comprised of expert staff and infrastructure that serve the technical needs of Center members. In particular, we operate three cores: the Aquatic Animal Models Facility, the Exposure and Biological Analysis Facility and the Integrative Health Sciences Facility. The Aquatic Animal Models Facility Core, itself, includes the Aquatic Animal Facility, the Neurobehavioral Toxicology Facility, and the Aquatic Models Molecular Techniques Facility. Likewise, the Integrative Health Sciences Facility Core includes the Clinical Research Unit, the Community Research Unit, Bioinformatics and Biostatistics.
