New Jersey's leading facility for workplace health, with a team of nationally-known occupational physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers and industrial hygienists, develops innovative services to meet the health needs of various corporations and businesses.
One of only 20 such centers in the U.S., the NIEHS Center is the driving force underlying much of EOHSI's scientific research. The center strives to solve environmental health problems through collaborative, interdisciplinary research.
The Center studies the causes, dynamics and effects of photochemical air pollution (smog), at the fundamental level with special focus on issues and air quality problems affecting the Northeastern United States and in particular the State of New Jersey.
The principal mission of the EPA Center for Exposure and Risk Modeling is the development and application of computational tools for source-to-dose exposure assessments. These tools can be used either on a "standalone" basis or as components of the (M)odeling (EN)vironment for (TO)tal (R)isk (MENTOR) system.
CounterACT is one of four new centers to develop drugs to counter chemical terrorism funded by the National Institute of Health via Project Bioshield. The goal of the Center is to understand the mechanism of action of vesicants in the skin, eye and lungs and to evaluate antidotes to vesicant poisoning.
