Biological Monitoring Component Program (BIOM)

The Biological Monitoring Component Program (BIOM) is an area of specialization within the Environmental and Occupational Hygiene M.S. and Ph.D. programs in the University of Cincinnati’s Department of Environmental Health. BIOM not only prepares its graduates with the tools that they need to be prepared to begin their careers in industry, labor and government, but builds a talent pool of individuals who have the knowledge base to develop, implement and evaluate biological monitoring programs. All program graduates are equipped to conduct research and evaluate data. This program also solidifies the transferable skills needed so that our graduates are able increasingly take on program responsibilities. Students with a BIOM concentration are required to complete a thesis in the area of biological monitoring and/or molecular epidemiology.
