Emory University and the Rollins School of Public Health have invested in a substantial expansion of environmental health sciences over the past five years, doubling the number of faculty in this area, building state-of-the-art laboratories, and establishing a new doctoral program. The HERCULES Center represents a culmination of that investment and recognition of the excellence of Emory's environmental health sciences program, says James Curran, MD, MPH, dean of the Rollins School of Public Health.

"We are very proud of the tremendous research that will be conducted as part of the HERCULES Center," Curran says. "This collaboration of investigators is a unique opportunity to empower and translate exposome research into innovative public health solutions."

Based at Emory's School of Public Health, the HERCULES Center comprises 38 investigators from both Emory and Georgia Tech. The center aims to promote the importance of the environment at a level equivalent to that of genetics.

A key feature of the HERCULES Center is the Systems Biology Core headed by Eberhard Voit, PhD, in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Voit is a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar. The Systems Biology Core will provide expertise in computational approaches used to analyze and integrate large datasets.

"Assessing the enormous complexity of the exposome means entering uncharted territory and a unique opportunity for exploring and applying concepts and computational technologies that are just emerging in the nascent field of systems biology," says Voit. "We are very excited that Georgia Tech and Emory will venture into this new field together to learn and gain a greatly improved understanding of health and disease."

"This is such exciting news for us all," explains Paige Tolbert, PhD, chair of Environmental Health at Rollins School of Public Health and deputy
