Center for Biomedical and Toxicological Research & Institute for Cooperative Environmental Research

"Perhaps the most significant and long-lasting consequence of the Institute for International Cooperative Environmental Research (IICER) at Florida State University is the opportunity it provides to initiate international cooperative efforts since, in the final analysis, it will be individuals working together who will solve our environmental problems."

Roy Herndon
Executive Director, ICER

Cape Canaveral project Center for Biomedical and Toxicological Research addresses problems associated with environmental impacts to human health not only in Florida, but nationally and worldwide. The CBTR accomplishes these goals by conducting research, teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, conducting focused technical training activities, and providing technical support services to government at the local, regional, national and international levels. CBTR faculty, staff and students have conducted numerous projects related to public health and environmental research and training for the Florida Departments of Environmental Protection, Health, Labor and Employment Security as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, and the U.S. Department of Energy.

Research project in Poland Institute for Cooperative Environmental Research conducts scientific cooperation that not only results in rapid and cost-effective advances in environmental research, but also provides increased educational and research opportunities for students. This student involvement is made evident by the significant participation of both undergraduate and graduate students in all of the ICER activities, as well as in the scholarships provided to students through the ICER's international symposium series and workshops. The workshops, training courses, and symposia which the ICER conducts are all important parts of its cooperative international environmental program.
