Environmental Health - Contaminant Biology
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Contaminant Biology Program develops and applies advanced laboratory methods and field investigations to understand potential biological health effects from exposures to chemical and microbial hazards in the environment. A primary focus is on the Nation's living resources that are under the stewardship of the Department of the Interior. Program scientists also work with health scientists to understand environmental aspects of pathogens that cause vector-borne or zoonotic diseases in humans.
