General Description

The VU’s Department of Environment & Health conducts academic research and training to strengthen our understanding of the impacts of environmental contaminants on human health and the environment. Multiple disciplines such as analytical chemistry, (eco)toxicology, risk assessment, epidemiology and health sciences are brought together to both educate students and conduct world class research. The systems studied by this unique group span from the molecular level to populations, ecosystems and society. Graduates of E&H academic programs are able to bring their fundamental understanding of the chemical contamination, toxicological effects and health aspects needed to find solutions to global health issues.  E&H’s researchers make use of state-of-the-art technical equipment and methodologies and their large international network to provide knowledge of the impacts of emerging contaminants to science, industry, governments and society. E&H’s expertise and research output make an important contribution to the knowledge needed for informed environmental governance of the most pressing environmental pollution issues.
