Environmental health

Understanding the contribution the natural environment makes to human health and wellbeing is increasingly important. Health services are focusing more on health promotion and disease prevention, and the major impact of environmental factors on wellness. Our programmes and research aim to protect the public from adverse environmental factors. 

We focus on:

  • Detection and examination of different environmental factors and determination of impact on human health 
  • Determination of risk associated with different environmental factors 


We conduct research in areas of environmental science that affect people's lives daily, such as food and water quality and noise effects.

Key research areas


Our highly qualified staff teach and research in areas relating to how environmental factors affect human health.
