About Us

The 64-member Center for Environmental Genetics (CEG) is a leading force in the study of gene-environment interactions (GxE) and the translation of research into targeted advances in primary prevention and clinical care.

Our mission

To conduct innovative, multidisciplinary GXE research and translate understanding of risk stratification to disease prevention via community empowerment, at home and around the globe. CEG investigators, trainees, collaborators, and staff are guided in this mission by our Internal and External Advisory Boards and by the Stakeholders Advisory Board of our Community Engagement Core.
