HERCULES: Exposome Research Center

HERCULES is a project funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences under their Environmental Health Sciences P30 Core Centers funding mechanism. Through the collaborative efforts of investigators at Emory University and Georgia Tech, HERCULES aims to use exposome-related approaches to improve human health. The Center provides key infrastructure and expertise to develop and refine new tools and technologies to generate exposure data, improve metabolomics approaches and synthesize data into comprehensive computational models. Although there is a strong emphasis placed on advancing exposome-related approaches, the Center also strives to enhance and expand existing relationships with community partners to facilitate communication about the importance of environmental factors in disease using exposome principles.
