NIEHS Releases Strategic Plan
In May, NIEHS unveiled a strategic plan aimed at challenging and energizing the scientific community to use environmental health sciences to improve human health and understand the causes of disease. The plan, "New Frontiers in Environmental Sciences and Human Health," called for interdisciplinary teams of scientists to investigate a broad spectrum of disease factors, including environmental agents, genetics, age, diet, and activity levels.
