Centre for Environmental and Occupational Health Research (CEOHR)

The Centre for Environmental and Occupational Health Research (CEOHR) conducts research in areas concerning chemical safety, and environmental and occupational health through close collaborations with the NUS Environmental Research Institute (NERI), Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, Singapore–MIT Alliance and Research Technology (SMART), China Center for Disease Control, Osaka University in Japan, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Fudan University, Wuhan University and other institutions in China. The Centre continued to have close collaborations with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and University of Pittsburgh in the U.S. in the past year.

The Centre’s current research foci include the detection and control of environmental and occupational diseases, carcinogenesis and chemoprevention, oxidative stress and antioxidants, and metabolomics. CEOHR also conducts research on the identification of biomarkers for the School’s Environmental and Occupational Health Studies, especially on how lifestyle and diets may affect chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

CEOHR has continued to collaborate with petrochemical industries on environmental surveillance, and various government agencies to examine the impact of haze and air quality that may affect Singapore and the region. Additionally, in collaboration with NERI, a 5-year research grant from the National Research Foundation (NRF) on food securities has been secured. CEOHR’s role is to identify the beneficial effects of nutrients of local leafy vegetables.

In the past year, the Centre has published 11 manuscripts related to biomarkers and environmental exposure and 6 manuscripts are currently under review.
