Research Improving Human Health and the Environment

In 2008, the Research Program at DIEHC was established to explore the intersection of human health and the environment. Since then, our studies have researched everyday environmental exposures with the goal of improving public health.
The DIEHC has formed collaborations with: 
  • Georgetown University
  • Rutgers University
  • Meadowlands Environmental Research Institute 
  • NJIT 
  • Departments across the Hackensack University Medical Center: 
  • Cancer Prevention and Control
  • Institute for Child Development
  • The Betty Torricelli Institute for Breast Care
  • Department of Maternal Fetal Medicine 
HackensackMeridian School of Medicine
Together, we continue to design innovative research in environmental health and translate findings into real-world solutions through community outreach, online resources, and clinical education. 
The Center's internship program has helped train the next generation of environmental health researchers with students from Penn State, Tulane University, Rutgers University, Montclair State University and others. See below to learn more about our completed and ongoing studies and publications.
