    About CEED

    The Center for Environmental Exposures and Disease (CEED) was established in 1987 as a collaboration between Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (merged in 2013), with a goal of understanding, detecting, preventing and solving environmental health problems through collaborative research. The Center has received generous support from NIEHS for the last 30 years [ES005022], as one of 22 Centers of Excellence. CEED currently has approximately 74 members from 23 Rutgers departments.

    Regionally, CEED serves New Jersey, the most densely populated and perhaps the most heavily polluted state in the nation. Nationally, our members serve as advisors to state and local officials, and citizen groups on issues of pollution and consequent disease, environmental health education and disease prevention.
