SAHSU is a nationally and internationally recognised institution for research into environment and health. SAHSU has published over 200 peer reviewed publications, contributed to a wealth of reports and regularly impacts on health policy. SAHSU is currently undertaking a number of major research projects, with increasing attention being given to exposure assessment.
SAHSU’s work therefore includes substantive epidemiological enquiries of environmental health problems and methodological research. SAHSU studies may involve (as necessary) environmental modelling and monitoring as well as biomarkers (of exposure, effects and genetic susceptibility) in addition to the analysis of routine health statistics, to aid interpretation of causal inference.
The SAHSU research team are working on over 20 research projects with many more in final stages of completion or initiation.
All our current projects can be found on the left side menu of this page.
