) is composed of a multidisciplinary team of investigators, all of whom having a common mission: to research and prevent diseases caused by hazards in outdoor and indoor environments. Hazards under investigation include: chemical and biological agents, present in air, water or food, and interacting with human reproductive, hepatic, immune and pulmonary functions. In addition to its research programs, one major task of Irset is the teaching and training, notably at Doctoral level, of the future experts in the fields of reproductive biology and health, toxicology, exposure assessment, epidemiology as well as public health.
Irset is a joint research unit of the French Institute of Medical Research (Inserm), the University of Rennes 1, and the EHESP-School of Public Health, in partnership with the University of Angers, the University of the Antilles, the National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS), and the Rennes, Angers and Pointe-à-Pitre University Hospitals.
