Research 

Working at the intersection of genetics, environmental health, and data science, researchers seek to understand these differing effects, evaluating gene-environment interactions. CPEH builds on its affiliation with other Baylor College of Medicine components, as well as state and national centers to develop new disease prevention and control strategies.
