Health Environmental Risk Assessment

The team is multidisciplinary, gathering competences in environmental/occupational epidemiology, environmental toxicology, biology and exposure/analytical sciences.

Hera team will join the Centre in 2019.

Major research axes
  • Environmental epidemiology
    This axis relies on the PARIS birth cohort follow-up and investigates the natural course of allergic/respiratory diseases and their association with lifestyle and indoor/outdoor environment in childhood.

  • Occupational epidemiology
    Echoing PARIS cohort research, this axis aims to study health effects of transport professionals’ exposure to air pollutants. In addition, it produces knowledge on occupational allergy and assess the effectiveness of public policies, through national and international networks.

  • Environmental toxicology
    To study the biological plausibility of epidemiological findings, the team develops in vitro models to assess cellular and molecular effects related to air pollutants.
