Title of Collaborative Activity:

Genetics in Environmental and Occupational Diseases

Description of Collaborative Activity:

These studies evaluate unique cohorts of individuals from professions associated with immune-mediated occupational diseases including asthma, respiratory and contact allergy, chronic beryllium disease, rhinitis, and silicosis. Occupational cohorts are being studied for a number of endpoints including the impact of genetic polymorphisms on inflammatory disease development and clinical outcomes, the role that genetic variations play in environmental and workplace related diseases, and the identification of unique immunological biomarkers for disease.
