Environmental Studies 

Our students will conduct research and use tools for achieving sustainable and resilient watersheds and water resources. This research and related projects will occur at the premises which were formerly the home of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Large Lake Research Center on Grosse Ile< Michigan in the Detroit metro area. The research includes the following:

  • Systems to predict the adverse effects of chemicals and other stressors across species and biological levels of organization through the development and quantification of adverse outcomes. 
  • Usage of integrated research to identify and characterize modifiable factors that respond to environmental conditions, and through intervention, improve health and human wellbeing. 
  • Translating and communicating integrated environmental and health effects science to impact policy decisions.
