This CEHI effort is sponsored by the National Institute of Health’s Roadmap Initiative. The mission of Duke’s Center for Geospatial Medicine is to develop systematic, spatially-based methods for analyzing the pathways through which the environment, genetic, and psychosocial domains jointly shape child health and well-being. Specific goals of this Center are to:
The CGM leverages active partnerships among the Nicholas School of the Environment, the Duke University Medical Center, and Trinity College of Arts and Sciences. The CGM links social, environmental, and genetic vulnerability using advanced spatial statistical approaches in combination with techniques from genetics and genomics. Using pregnancy outcomes as a prototype health endpoint, the CGM is developing a generalized framework for applying these methods to a wide variety of health endpoints, including autism, asthma, ADHD, and obesity.
