The Epidemiology Resources web tool was created to organize and share information about NIEHS-funded environmental epidemiology studies. The tool aims to help the public learn more about the environmental epidemiology studies NIEHS funds, and to maximize the substantial investment NIEHS has made in these studies by facilitating new collaborations and ancillary studies within the environmental health research community.
