Focus Areas

The Institute is a leading scientific research organization in the environmental health science field today. The institute produces award-winning, peer-reviewed science that addresses critical health and environmental issues faced by exposed populations of people and wildlife. Its present-day areas of focus – from human exposure to oil spill pollution and marine wildlife exposure – reflect the strong human-wildlife connection that has been the conceptual bedrock of the Institute since its founding in 1990.
