Population health risk assessment is the comprehensive assessment of health risks in the general population based on the genetic and biological, environmental and occupational, social and behavioural factors that determine health. It is necessary to develop strategies to ensure that the population health status in Canada is maintained and further developed. Continuous challenges to health, such as radiation, water contamination, air pollution and mad cow disease, serve as reminders of the need to anticipate and prevent new health threats. The McLaughlin Centre is rapidly becoming recognized as a leading international research centre in the field of population health risk assessment. The Centre is committed to honesty, fairness, respect, cooperation, open communication and scientific and academic excellence in training and research.
