The Thai Fogarty ITREOH Center (Grant Number D43 TW007849 Fogarty International Center – National Institutes of Health) provides training and research opportunities in a partnership between Chulalongkorn University in Thailand and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) through EOHSI and the NIEHS Center (CEED). Other collaborating institutions include Emory University, Rollins School of Public Health, Wake Forest University School of Medicine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the Thai-US Fulbright Foundation.   The focus of the project is the assessment and reduction of  pesticide exposures to farmers and farm families in rural SE Asia.

To date we have supported 14 trainees from seven SE Asian countries for MPH and PhD degrees as well as the first full time environmental health faculty member at the Chulalongkorn College of Public Health Sciences.  We have also funded five pilot projects, one of which has resulted in an R21 (N Fielder PI) on “Neurobehavioral Effects of Pesticide Exposure among Children in Rural Thailand”.  Nine EOHSI faculty have participated in the workshops at Chulalongkorn University.
