About GEH

  • Addresses the fundamental mechanisms by which environmental exposures combine with genetic susceptibility to influence risk of complex human diseases and disorders.
  • Builds on evolving knowledge in the fields of genomics and epigenomics to understand mechanisms that act at the interface of genes and environment to influence gene activity and phenotype.
  • Emphasizes laboratory-based studies in model systems at the cellular, organ and system level.
  • In 2012, with the help of our stakeholders, NIEHS completed a new strategic plan that identified the institute‚Äôs priority research areas through 2017. The GEH goals align broadly with the following strategic plan goals:
    • Goal 1: Fundamental Mechanisms/Pathways
    • Goal 7: Knowledge Management
