This advanced research seminar in Miami, Florida (USA) is thematically focused at the intersection of community resilience, public health and housing studies.

In this course, we will explore the development of our modern food production and distribution system and its effects on our environment and planet.  To explore the opportunities for and challenges to achieving a sustainable food system, we will critically review published studies and other asses

Rapid human population growth and even more rapid growth in consumption are driving a transformation of most of Earth’s natural systems including its climate system, its oceans, land cover, biogeochemical cycles, biodiversity, and coastal and fresh water systems.  These systems underpin global fo

It is well-known and oft-repeated in environmental health circles that we spend 90% of time indoors.

The seminars consist of student presentation of plans for collection and analysis of data, with discussion by students and faculty. Preparatory work is done under tutorial arrangements with members of the faculty.

The Making Rights Real clinic will build on a partnership between Professor White, Harvard law students, and a network of Ghanaian Human Rights / Development organizations which began in 2002.

This course will introduce students to nutrition and global health problems through exploration of demographic, epidemiological, biological, social, political, and economic determinants of nutritional status.

The seminars consist of student presentation of plans for collection and analysis of data, with discussion by students and faculty. Preparatory work is done under tutorial arrangements with members of the faculty.

This course provides a cross-disciplinary overview of environmental science and how research contributes to public policy and human health risk assessment through a case study of a global pollution issue: lead biogeochemistry.

Overview of Occupational and Environmental Medicine including: the diagnosis and management of illnesses following exposure to specific workplace substances, environmental and community hazards, such as asbestos, lead, organic solvents, and vibration; methods of diagnosis of early organ system ef

Reviews the methods used to characterize environmental and occupational exposures. Presents approaches for biologically based exposure assessment matched to epidemiologic designs. Emphasizes evaluation of scientific literature. Course Activities: Students will critique 4 case study papers.

Human activity is changing the atmosphere and altering terrestrial and marine ecosystems on a global scale. Evidence is mounting that these changes may already be having serious effects on human health, and there is growing concern that in coming decades the effects could be catastrophic.

The multidisciplinary application of epidemiology, molecular biology and genetics, pathogenesis, drug discovery, immunology and vaccine development, and economic analysis to understanding and combating major threats to human health in developing countries.

This general microbiology course will focus on the genetics, cell biology, and physiology of microorganisms. The goal of this course is to give the students a broad overview of microbial physiology in the context of disease and environmental applications.

The connection between health, well-being, and place is a complex one with many dimensions.

Human activity is changing the atmosphere and altering terrestrial and marine ecosystems on a global scale for the first time in history.

Epigenetics is a fast growing field, with increasing applicability in environmental and epidemiology studies, focusing on the alterations in chromatin structure that can stably and heritably influence gene expression.

This course offers a comprehensive overview of gaseous and particulate air pollutants. It will emphasize pollutant sources, physical and chemical properties, sampling and analysis, chemical transformation, atmospheric transport, fate, and potential for adverse health and environmental impacts.

This course examines application of epidemiologic methods to environmental and occupational health problems.

In this course, we explore the development of our modern food production and distribution system and its effects on our environment and planet. We critically review published studies and other assessments that evaluate the environmental and social impact of food-related products and processes.

This course is designed to teach an understanding of the basic principles of water pollution and water pollution issues on local, regional and global scales. The course will begin with a discussion of the basic chemical, physical and biological properties of water and water contaminants.

This course is designed to provide the tools and foundations necessary to understand the fate and transport of environmental contaminants in various environmental media and to estimate their impact on human exposure.

This course surveys the scientific principles of environmental issues and environmental management practices, with attention to the health of both humans and the ecosystem.

This course is required for all incoming master of science students in GHP. It is intended as a broad survey of the main facts, issues, perspectives, methods, results, and conclusions in the areas of global population and health.

Provides students with the opportunity to review the epidemiologic basis for associating selected occupational and environmental exposures with health outcomes and to explore how this science might be used to develop and implement regulation of these exposures.

This course offers a general introduction to environmental health from local to global, addressing fundamental topics and current controversies.

This course provides an introduction to the physical and chemical impacts of energy choices on human society and natural ecosystems.

Introduces the framework of risk assessment, considers its relationship with cost-benefit, decision analysis and other tools for improving environmental decisions. The scientific foundations for risk assessment (epidemiology, toxicology, and exposure assessment) are discussed.

This course covers applied advanced regression analysis. Its focus is on relaxing classical assumptions in regression analysis to better match what epidemiological data really looks like.

The course will assess the impact of the environment on the onset and exacerbation of cardiovascular diseases. Environmental exposures that have been implicated to impact cardiovascular disease are predominantly air pollution, second hand smoke, noise, and heat.

Starting with the fundamentals of radiation protection, this course then treats in-depth selected topics in occupational and environmental radiation protection (e.g.

Human activity is changing the atmosphere and altering terrestrial marine ecosystems on a global scale. Evidence is mounting that these changes may already be having serious effects on human health, and there is growing concern that in coming decades the effects could be catastrophic.

This course will examine methodological issues associated with the design and execution of studies designed to measure environmental exposure to chemical and biological contaminants.

The course comprises introductory lectures and discussions on key aspects of industrial hygiene and occupational health covering recognition, evaluation and control of health hazards at work.

This course is appropriate for students interested in learning quantitative methods for assessing environmental exposures and hazards.

The Harvard NIEHS Center for Environmental Health serves as the primary focus for environmental health-related research and training activities in the Harvard School of Public Health, in the Harvard Longwood Medical Area, and more broadly as an integrating umbrella for environmental health research in the Boston health sciences research community.

Harvard Global Health Institute is a university-wide initiative whose mission is to educate and train the next generation of global health leaders, and create and disseminate new knowledge to address the major challenges in global health.

The objective of the Education and Research Center is to give occupational safety and health professionals the opportunity to develop public health perspectives, a sensitivity about political climates, and the skills and knowledge needed to identify and prevent occupational impairments, disease, and injuries through control or elimination of harmful occupational exposures.

The Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies (HCPDS) is at the cusp of the rapidly evolving field of population health. Capitalizing on the profundity of expertise across the University, the HCPDS brings together faculty, students, and researchers from a wide array of disciplines including epidemiology, economics, demography, sociology, statistics, and population genetics.

The Harvard Center for Risk Analysis (HCRA) is a multidisciplinary group of faculty, research staff, students, and visiting scholars who work together to improve decisions about environmental health. We conduct state-of-the-art research, educate the next generation of leaders in risk analysis and related disciplines, and encourage public discourse about risk topics.

The mission of the Center is to help people understand that our health, and that of our children, depends on the health of the environment, and that we must do everything we can to protect it. To fulfill its mission, the Center organizes a number of programs for physicians, scientists, policymakers, the media, and the general public.

Through integrated, cross-disciplinary initiatives in research, teaching, training, and public outreach the Program seeks to develop foundational, policy-relevant insights into the nature of science and technology, and the ways in which they both influence and are influenced by society, politics, and culture. 

The Office for Sustainability at Harvard connects people across the University with information, tools, and inspiration for the challenge at hand: making Harvard sustainable for the long term.

The China Project is a research program focused on China’s atmospheric environment, collaborating across the schools of Harvard University and with Chinese universities. It conducts interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed studies on air pollution and greenhouse gases in China, from the root causes in the demand for and supply of energy powering its economy, to the chemistry and transport of pollutants in the atmosphere, to their impacts on human health and the economy.
