AG Umweltepidemiologie / Environmental Epidemiology

Our mission is to identify harmful exposures for human health in the environment and to contribute to prevention of environmentally-related disease. We do so by conducting epidemiological studies of short- and long-term effects and translate these findings to policy makers and the public. Our main focus is on cardio-metabolic disease, respiratory disease and mental health. We are part of several large national and international consortia
