The Environmental Health Laboratory (EHL) and Trace Organics Analysis Center (TOAC) are directed by Dr. Shar Samy. The EHL was accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) during 1977–2008 and is accredited by AIHA Laboratory Accreditation Programs, LLC (AIHA-LAP, LLC) since 2008. The Laboratory supports agencies and employers throughout the State. The TOAC is supported by research grants and income from fee-for-service analyses.
Since its formation in 1995, the Functional Genomics Laboratory Facility Core of the Center for Exposures, Diseases, Genomics, and Environment has increased the number and types of genotyping assays available, continued the development and testing of new molecular biology-related instrumentation and methodologies, and incorporated additional molecular biology-associated computer software. Dr. Theo Bammler is the director.
The Environmental and Occupational Health Microbiology Lab investigates the fate, transport, detection, and control of pathogens in environmental media (air, water, food, and surfaces).
