CHC Research

CHC research ranges from the basic to the applied. Our Center is dedicated to:

  • understanding the pathways through which children are exposed to pesticides,
  • assessing exposure to pesticides,
  • implementing interventions to reduce exposure to pesticides, and
  • evaluating the impacts of pesticides on childhood learning, growth and development.

We incorporate scientific findings on pesticide toxicity and exposure into the risk assessment models we design, making the models more protective of children's health.

While collaborative research is a key component of the CHC, researchers' efforts are focused into eight sections: four research projects and four facility cores. You can see an organization chart by clicking here.
