About the Center
Working at the intersection of genetics, environmental health, and data science, researchers in Baylor College of Medicine’s Center for Precision Environmental Health seek to understand these differing effects, evaluating gene-environment interactions. Center researchers work to understand how the environment influences health and disease and uncover new disease control strategies and interventions.
Dr. Cheryl Lyn Walker, director of the Center for Precision Environmental Health, is a world leader in research on how environmental, genetic, and epigenetic factors interact to cause endocrine diseases and cancer
