A potentially useful resource: Built Environment + Public Health Clearinghouse

Just discovered this site from Georgia Tech: Built Environment + Public Health Clearinghouse.  It has some useful information about schools, courses, training activities and general information relating to what they call “at this critical intersection of health and place.”  Some of the resources are pretty minimal but there is still a lot there that I found helpful for learning about areas I am not that familiar with.  For example they have source curriciula guidance and some good collections of suggested reading for such courses.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. My lab is in the UC Davis Genome Center and I hold appointments in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Medicine and the Department of Evolution and Ecology in the College of Biological Sciences. My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis (see my lab site here which has more information on lab activities).  In addition to research, I am heavily involved in the Open Access publishing and Open Science movements.
