About CEHC

The Children’s Environmental Health Center (CEHC) is a Center of Excellence at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Founded in 2007, they conduct groundbreaking research to identify the environmental causes of childhood diseases. They translate their findings, into solutions using research to educate families and advocate for public policy that protect children’s health. Through their “transdisciplinary” model, they believe that no single field of science can explain the environmental origins of diseases. The CEHC team has been able to integrate disciplines like molecular biology, chemistry, toxicology, biostatistics, and phenotyping to develop new methods to address how the environment shapes health and disease. Learn more about the work they are doing.
