Faculty research covers a diverse range of disciplines and topics including toxicology and environmental health
; infectious disease

; and environmental chemistry
Since the early 2000s, toxicology has been recognized at CSU as a University Program of Research and Scholarly Excellence. In 2005, under the direction of Dr. William Hanneman, the toxicology curriculum, research and outreach were updated to reflect current trends and new technologies being demanded by the challenges facing our world. The new toxicology program laid the foundation for the development of the CSU Center for Environmental Medicine.
With administrative support from CSU and the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, the CEM was established with Dr. William Hanneman as Director in 2008. CEM now extends beyond the toxicology section to embrace research, teaching and outreach partners from a cross section of programs and departments. It provides a place where multipartner and international projects can flourish to address today’s complex environmental health issues.
