Found in 1916, the Bloomberg School of Public Health is consistently ranked the #1 school of public health by U.S. News and World Report. Its mission is simply put, but far from simple: protect health and save lives, millions at a time. Milestone contributions to global public health include eradicating smallpox, engineering water safe to drink, and uncovering the dangers of tobacco smoke. Researchers today are working to uncover ways to eliminate Zika, encourage healthy behaviors, and improve quality of life for those living with chronic disease.

Recycling bins are not permitted in labs, but you may recycle a limited number of items in the hallway recycling bins outside the lab if they have not been exposed to biological, chemical, or radiological contamination. Items include all types of office paper, pipette tip racks and boxes (not tips!), and plastic bottles which previously contained buffers or other solutions that did not include biological materials such as serum, growth factors, media supplements, etc. Labels of such bottles must be defaced or removed. Materials from labs must be collected within the lab and recycled of in designated bins in the hallway.
Pipette tips must go to biohazard. Hazardous chemical waste is collected in W1303 near the loading dock and disposed of by Health, Safety, and Environment.
