Environmental Health Sciences

About

The Department of Environmental Health Sciences is a joint venture between the New York State Department of Health and the University at Albany where laboratory scientists and population scientists collaborate together in addressing a broad range of environmental health issues.

There are different forms of environmental stresses that can affect the health of all animals and plants. Over the centuries global health has been improving but health disparities continue to exist and some technologies have led to alterations of our air, water and soil, which can affect the health of susceptible populations. The anthropogenic increases and redistributions of environmental chemicals have caused physical modifications apparent as “climate change” with direct and indirect effects on health such as more extreme fluctuations in temperature and more widespread and divergent dissemination of pathogens.

The Department of Environmental Health Sciences pursues collaborative research activities to better understand the collective and continuous exposures to environmental stresses (biological, chemical, physical and psychological) that affect health at all stages of life. Fetuses, infants, and the elderly are especially susceptible to environmental stressors. In our department, we have environmental chemists, who perform qualitative and quantitative analyses of the chemical and physical stressors in the environment and biological specimens; toxicologists, who assess the effects of environmental stressors on physiological processes and induction of disorders; and epidemiologists and biostatisticians, who evaluate the multiplicities of genetics and the lifetime environmental influences on health. Studies address why certain populations are more vulnerable due to genetics, age, sex, diet, lifestyle, and family and environmental history.

Featured Research Projects

Capital Region FRESH

The Capital Region FRESH project is a community-engaged research project that aims to quantify environmental, nutritional, and health impacts of the food recovery and redistribution system in the Capital Region, and ascertain impacts under proposed policy scenarios. The interdisciplinary team has expertise approaching food system questions via lenses of environmental health, epidemiology, environmental engineering, social and behavioral health, and policy. Learn more about Capital Region FRESH.

Cardiovascular Diseases

Kai Zhang is studying the long-term impact of urban environments on the progression of cardiovascular health among healthy adults since early adulthood. Zhang’s project is multidisciplinary to link cutting-edge exposure science approach with cardiovascular health research. The team will evaluate the impact of multiple urban exposures in the development of cardiovascular diseases by and will utilize the emerging urban exposome framework that incorporates air pollution and hundreds of features of the natural, built, and social environments within cities.

The Upstate KIDS Study

The Upstate KIDS study is a collaborative project between the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the New York State Department of Health, and the University at Albany School of Public Health. It tracks the growth, motor, and social development of children given the increasing use of infertility treatment, occurrence of maternal obesity and pregnancy complications, and rising maternal age at birth. From 2008 to 2010, over 5000 mothers and their 6000 children born from the 57 counties of New York State (exclusive of New York City) joined this important study.

The PFAS Multi-Site Health Study

Researchers at the University at Albany and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) received funding from ATSDR to study PFAS and its possible relationship to health among those exposed to PFAS-contaminated drinking water in the village of Hoosick Falls and Hoosick area, and the city of Newburgh. The researchers will enroll 1,000 adults and 300 children from both communities to evaluate their PFAS blood and urine levels, health measures like thyroid hormone levels and liver function, and medical history to better understand how PFAS may affect health.

Meet Our Students

Blood Lead Determination by Electrothermal Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (ETAAS)

Over the past 5 decades, extensive efforts have succeeded in reducing lead (Pb) exposures and further help lower population blood Pb levels. The CDC has recently decreased the blood Pb reference value from 5 µg/dL to 3.5 µg/dL. Emily Pacer's MS project was to improve the method for the determination of lead in blood using ETAAS instrumentation to support this lower blood Pb reference value for children.

 Now, Emily is located at the Wadsworth Center working with Patrick Parsons for her PhD. She recently attended the Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry, presenting a poster on her MS work titled, "An Improved Method for Blood Lead Determination by ETAAS: Validation and Commutability Studies using ICP-MS as a Reference Method" and won 2nd place.

 

Emily wears a lab coat and a mask and sits at a desk in the Wadsworth Center.

PFAS in Drinking Water

Claire Pattison is a research scientist in the Division of Environmental Health Assessment at the New York State Department of Health in Albany, New York. She is currently working on a CDC/ATSDR funded grant investigating the association between PFAS in drinking water and the effects of human health in two New York communities (Hoosick Falls and Newburgh). She plans to defend her dissertation next year to complete her Doctor of Public Health degree.

Water Supply Protection & Regulation

Christina Cloutier interns at the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Water Supply Protection where she is assisting in updates for the regulation Title 10 Part 4-1 Protection Against Legionella and public inquiry regarding cooling tower compliance. The updates to the regulation will be helpful for monitoring cooling towers for contamination with Legionella.

A portrait of Christina Cloutier.

From Phthalates to Cancer Outcomes

Thoin Begum graduated with her PhD in Environmental Health Sciences in May 2022. Her dissertation examined the association between exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls and difficulty in daily functioning among adults of the Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne. She also has researched the outcomes of exposure to phthalates on infertility treatment outcomes among a fertility comprised cohort. Her work has expanded to examining the lifestyle patterns among Romanian women undergoing infertility treatment. Dr. Begum has also examined the long-term mental health effects of elderly individuals living in NYC exposed to Hurricane Sandy and is now examining water quality in rural Pakistan. She is shifting her focus to examine the social determinants of health and cancer outcomes among the Asian American population at her postdoctoral fellowship position at the Center for Asian Health in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University - and we can't wait to see where her career takes her!

Collaborating with the WHO

A review from PhD student Tamba Lebbie in collaboration with the World Health Organization shows that discarded electronics and electrical equipment pose health threats to children in African counties where it is imported and dismantled under unsafe conditions.

Prestigious Fellowship

PhD student Amanda Andreas was awarded the prestigious Johanna M. Resig Research Fellowship by the Cushman Foundation for Foraminiferal Research for her dissertation work entitled “Cytological and Physiological Impacts of Toxic Metals on an Agglutinated Antarctic Foraminifer.”

International Presentations

Dr. Omosehin Moyebi successfully defended his doctoral dissertation titled, “Megacity: A Reservoir of Toxic Environmental Contaminants and Health Disease Burden” and will present his research titled, “State of Ambient Air Quality of a Mega City in Southeast Asia: A Case Study of Karachi, Pakistan” at the Asian Aerosol Conference in Taipei, Taiwan on June 12-16, 2022.
