Members

The Philadelphia Regional Center for Children’s Environmental Health is made possible thanks to the dedicated member researchers and healthcare providers focused on improving the health of our region’s children.

Our members represent multiple Philadelphia regional universities and institutions with specialties in pediatrics, toxicology, neonatology, occupational and environmental medicine, nursing, social sciences, implementation science, bioinformatics, epidemiology and more. What unites them is a focus on children’s environmental health research and healthcare.

We’re always looking for new members! To be eligible, at least part of your research must focus on children’s environmental health issues, and you must be based in the Philly region. Contact us to learn more.
