The Cincinnati Children's Environmental Health Center was established to conduct research and training aimed at reducing disease and disability in children caused by environmental hazards. The center’s goal is to promote health and prevent disease by conducting research on environmental antecedents of diseases that originate in childhood, especially environmental hazards. The center seeks new collaborators who are interested in the study of environmental exposures and child health, development and behavior.
Currently, the center is researching the impact of prenatal and early postnatal exposures to a variety of environmental toxicants and residential hazards on the health, development and behaviors of children enrolled in the HOME Study.

Young children are more vulnerable to exposures to environmental toxins because of their frequent hand to mouth behaviors.
Most childhood injuries occur at home, accounting for over 13 million clinic visits and more than 4 million emergency visits each year in the United States.
Even the smallest amounts of tobacco smoke could affect a child’s health, development, and behaviors.
The center is currently supported by grants from the federal government, via the National Institutes of Health, as well as grants from private foundations dedicated to research.
