Molecular Epidemiology, Genomics, Environment, and Health

We conduct interdisciplinary and translational research in genetics, neurobiology, environmental science, and human health—using "systems science" to develop integrative approaches that better define disease states and states of wellness and susceptibility to disorders and disease.

Working together, we help to devise medical, psychosocial, and public health interventions and policies that promote the implementation of personalized and preventive medicine.

Focus Areas

  • Personalized and preventive medicine
  • Mental and behavioral health etiology, interventions, and policy
  • Public health policies
  • Treatment and public health interventions
  • Disease and wellness
  • Health care outcomes
  • Translational research
