The Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology works closely with several research Centers and Institutes at Oregon State University. They include:
Superfund Research Program (SRP)
Director: Robert L. Tanguay, Ph.D.
1011 Agricultura dn Life Science Building
Corvallis, OR 97331
The Superfund Research Program (SRP) focuses on new technologies and emerging health risks related to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. SRP was established in 2009 and brings together a multi-disciplinary team with years of experience in PAHs and environmental health issues. Investigative teams from Oregon State University and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will emphasize basic and applied research using state-of-the-art techniques to better understand PAHs and their impacts on human and ecological health.
Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) Center
Director: Joseph S. Beckman, Ph.D.
1011 ALS Building
Corvallis, OR 97331-7302
Phone: 541-737-8820 Fax: 541-737-4371
The Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) Center was established in 1967 with funding by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), one of the institutes comprising the National Institutes of Health. The Center provides resources for coordination and stimulation of interdisciplinary basic research and training related to effects of environmental agents on human health. The theme of the research mission for the EHS Center is to generate new understandings of the effects of environmental agents on proteins, nucleic acids, and gene expression. The research activities are devoted largely to (1) interactions of environmental agents with cellular macromolecules, (2) the effects of such agents on gene expression and the properties of gene products, and (3) the analytical tools with which to analyze the environmental agents and the nature of their interactions with macromolecules at the cellular level and in the environment.
Linus Pauling Institute (LPI)
Interim Director: Fred Stevens, Ph.D.
571 Weniger Hall
Corvallis, OR 97331-6512
Phone: 541-737-5078 Fax: 541-737-5077
The Linus Pauling Institute was established at Oregon State University in August 1996 under an agreement reached between OSU and its antecedent organization, the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine (located in California from 1973 to 1996). The Institute functions from the basic premise that an optimum diet is the key to optimum health. Our mission is to determine the function and role of micronutrients, vitamins, and phytochemicals in promoting optimum health and preventing and treating disease; to determine the role of oxidative stress and antioxidants in human health and disease; and to advance knowledge in areas that were of interest to Linus Pauling through research and education.
Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing (CGRB)
Interim Director: Brett Tyler, Ph.D.
3021 Ag & Life Sciences Building
Corvallis, OR 97331-7303
Phone: 541-737-3347 Fax: 541-737-3045
The Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing at Oregon State University serves the biosciences research community at Oregon State University with the ultimate goal of improving health, natural and agricultural resources, and environmental quality. The Center offers leadership and services to faculty, staff and students through core facilities, seminars, and retreats. It also provides a focal point for researchers to make contacts, initiate collaborations, and establish new technologies in their own laboratories.
