The core of the University of Iowa Industrial Hygiene program consists of three faculty members. These faculty are recognized nationally for their research on bioaerosols, organic aerosols, crystalline silica, toxic metals, pesticides, radon, exposure assessment, control technology, toxicology, hazard control, and risk assessment. Many other OEH Department faculty members serve as advisors and mentors to industrial hygiene students. Our faculty are also actively involved in professional outreach.
