CHEEC has an active research program. In addition to its seed grant program, CHEEC initiates and develops environmental health research projects and works cooperatively as co-investigators with researchers at a number of universities, federal agencies, and state of Iowa environmental and health departments.
Currently, CHEEC staff are working on or supporting several projects either as co-investigators, by providing database management services or financial match.
Prevalence and concentrations of antibiotic resistant microbes and genes in Iowa streams and rivers
Detection of Neonicotinoid Exposure Among Females Farmers in Iowa
Iowa Statewide small community drinking water survey of lead, copper and arsenic
Investigation of prenatal and postnatal exposures in the etiology of breast and thyroid cancers in young adult Iowa women
Since 1999 CHEEC has actively worked with researchers to implement cooperative research programs that leverage data and funding from university, state, and federal entities to conduct research in areas of mutual interest. The collaboration requires matching funds from participating entities.
Since the Cooperative Research Program was established, 17 projects have been funded. This investment has generated almost $1,700,000 in matching funds, or almost four dollars in match for every dollar awarded by the center.
