Ons Omgeving & Gezondheidsonderzoek streeft ernaar om factoren in kaart te brengen die risico op ziekte beïnvloeden en die primaire preventie en een gezonde levensstijl promoten. We focussen op het ontrafelen van verschillende externe invloeden van omgeving en levensstijl op biologische reacties en gezondheidseffecten.
