What the EPA project is about
The Center for Public Health and Environmental Assessment (CPHEA) provides the science needed to understand the complex interrelationship between people and nature in support of assessments and policy to protect public health. The Clinical Research Branch (CRB) of CPHEA’s Public Health and Integrated Toxicology Division (PHITD) operates laboratories and clinical facilities at the EPA Human Studies Facility building (HSF) located on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. CRB investigators conduct clinical studies involving human volunteers to determine the effects of exposure to ambient pollution on human health and elucidate the mechanisms through which these effects occur through related laboratory studies. CRB studies are conducted in close consultation with client offices in order to support the regulatory activities of the Agency.
