Research Program of Brian Schwartz, MD, MS

Dr. Schwartz is an environmental epidemiologist investigating a broad range of environmental exposures and diseases, from specific toxicants like lead and other metals, to newer concerns such as the environmental health consequences of climate change, food production, and unconventional natural gas development. Through his work with the Environmental Health Institute at the Geisinger Health System, he has become increasingly interested in using electronic health records for “big data” epidemiology.

There are many ongoing opportunities for students interested in environmental epidemiologic research. Dr. Schwartz's funding for training and research is provided through various grants.
