Discover Texas Tech: The Institute of Environmental and Human Health


For two decades, Texas Tech University, in partnership with the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, has conducted highly critical research on contaminants in the environment, pollution effects, insect-borne diseases and other biological threats. This research is the basis of The Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH), one of the few places in the nation committed to environmental toxicology.

"TIEHH has been a critical player and contributor in the society of environmental toxicology and chemistry. TIEHH has always been a leader," said associate professor of environmental toxicology Steve Presley. "We're gaining more ground both in environmental toxicology but also in the disease and the biological threat world."
