Project Overview

The Gulf Coast Center for Precision Environmental Health (GC-CPEH) is a multi-institutional Center supporting academic and research partnerships between Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health (UTHealth) School of Public Health, and UTMB.

The goals are to 1: Integrate and catalyze impactful EHS research across institutions of the Texas Medical Center and promote the next-generation of EHS researchers; 2: Provide inter-institutional access to resources and cutting-edge technologies to accelerate translation and reverse translation of research advances to improve human environmental health; 3: Support and empower community engagement across the Gulf Coast region by linking community stakeholders and investigators in multi-directional communication activities that inform GC-CPEH research: 4: Enable rapid response research activities during and after environmental emergencies in the Gulf Coast region.
