Each department within the School of Public Health and Health
Professions has its own discipline-specific research facilities as
well as access to shared resources.
The Department of Epidemiology and Environmental Health has extensive facilities available for all stages of research: interviews; collecting, processing and storing biological specimens; and data entry, processing and analysis.
This facility houses specimens collected as part of the department’s epidemiological studies and clinical trials. The specimens are stored either in -80°C freezers and in cryogenic containers, or immersed in liquid nitrogen (-196 °C). A complex, secure computerized mapping system tracks the specimens and a sophisticated back-up system maintains integrity. The EEH specimen bank currently houses about 700,000 samples from approximately 20,000 participants.
