The Centre for Health from Environment (CHfE) is an integral part of the Ryan Institute. It brings together existing research strands and groups associated with the Ryan Institute and from the wider University Community to generate and sustain new academic activity. The CHfE is managed by a steering committee of staff members who have an established record of collaboration and successful funding applications with each other in this area. There is no comparable Centre in an Irish University and it is clear from the emergence of such Centres in major international academic institutions and from calls for research proposals that there is a niche in this area that NUI Galway is well placed to fill.
