The cores

Like other centers sponsored by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), the research we do at the UC Davis Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC) can be broken up into three key areas or "cores." Contact any one of the co-directors below for more information.

New research on wildfires in California

“We know what natural wildfire smoke is composed of, but we have no idea what will be in urban wildfire smoke. We expect it to be very different.” Keith Bein, UC Davis Air Quality Research Center


Researchers from the UC Davis Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC) are working with communities across California to study the impact smoke and burned debris have had on survivors of wildfires over the past two years.
