The Center for Human Health Risks administers and is located in the Hollings
Marine Laboratory. Team research is the theme of the Hollings Marine Laboratory. No longer can one scientist
working in one discipline, or at one institution, independently provide solutions
to the coastal environmental and public health problems of this nation. The cumulative
and combined expertise and skills of the Partners provide the resources that allow
the research teams to assess marine environmental quality and link it to human health.
The overall research partnership exemplified by the
HML provides a model for the kinds of collaborative approaches that can
be utilized to enhance research. The HML
approach takes advantage of the wide range of intellectual and other resources of
its partners, including federal and state governmental agencies and academic institutions.
