Description

Through the NIEHS Center Core Grant Program the University of Arizona
Center for Toxicology will develop the Southwest Environmental Health
Sciences Center (SWEHSC), at the University of Arizona. The EHSC will be
a major component of the University of Arizona Center for Toxicology,
which was established by the Arizona Board of Regents in 1987. The
mission of the EHSC is to integrate, coordinate and expand interactions
among a group of established investigators conducting high quality
research in the area of environmental health sciences. This mission will
be fulfilled by fostering interdisciplinary approaches to understanding
mechanisms by which environmental chemicals impact human health and to
identifying factors that affect these mechanisms. Thirty-two SWEHSC
Investigators have formed four interdisciplinary Research Programs that
represent current research activities and provide the basis for new
research initiatives. These Programs are Biotransformation, Metals, Cell
Injury and Environmental Genetics. To increase productivity and enhance
the quality of research being conducted in each of these Research
Programs, three Service Cores (Synthetic Chemistry, Analytical Services,
Experimental Pathology) have been formed. These cores will offer certain
routine services and assist investigators in introducing new
methodologies into their research. In addition to the three Service
Cores, a Transgenic Animal Facility will be developed within the
Environmental Genetics Research Program. The Administrative Core will
provide enrichment programs for SWEHSC investigators through seminars and
workshops, recruit new SWEHSC Investigators both from within and outside
the University of Arizona, promote opportunities for innovative research
ideas through the Pilot Projects Program, and oversee all activities.
The Community Outreach and Education Program will encourage students,
particularly minority students to consider careers in environmental
health; establish collaborative research and education programs in
Mexico; and offer programs in environmental sciences to health related
professionals. The SWEHSC will be a regional representative of NIEHS
serving citizens in the Southwest. Because of the proximity of this area
to Mexico and collaborative interactions to develop environmental health
science programs in that country, SWEHSC will have a positive health
impact on citizens on both sides of the border.
