HOME > Research > Research institute > Institute for Environmental Research > Introduction

  • Date of Establishment : March 1, 1968
  • Director : Dong Chun Shin, M.D., Ph.D.
  • Number of Researchers : 22
  • Main Research Areas
    The institute for Environmental Research is composed of for main research areas; risk assessment, environmental analysis, environmental health engineering, environmental epidemiology.
    • Risk Assessment
      Research it aimed at generating and developing technology for the control of environmental pollutants and hazardous chemicals which pose a threat to human health. It is divided into four parts: risk analysis, comparative risk analysis, risk perception and communication, and risk management.
    • Environmental Analysis
      Environmental analysis provides basic analytical data of environmental pollutants to support other research areas and develops pre-treatment methods for samples. It is divided into three parts: general experimental, which analyses environmental pollutants using the standard method, instrumnetal analysis, which analyses trace pollutants using HPLC, AAS, GC/MSD etc, and the study of human exposure to biomarlcers of pollytants.
    • Environmental Health Engineering
      The objective of this research is to develop reduction technology for risks caused by environmental pollutants. It has 3 tasks:identification of pollutants and exposure assessment, development of risk reduction methods and technology, and finally, development of management methods.
    • Environmental Epidemiology
      Here, research abased on the scientific method assesses the relationship between environmental pollution and disease or the subsequent adverse health outcome in the general population.
