PRESENTATION

The Academic Master's Degree in Environment and Health of t UNIC has as its purpose to form  teachers able to search and understand the functioning of complex interactions between man and the environment, involving the legal Amazon ecosystems as well as the impact of these actions on the population health.

The Program aims to meet the demand of professionals who  research, update and develop activities related to Environmental Science and Health in the state of Mato Grosso and Midwest Region.

 

Target Audience

The program is multidisciplinary, with emphasis in the areas of health (pharmacy, physiotherapy, nursing, medicine, dentistry, biomedicine, psychology) and environment (engineering, biology and physics) and related areas.

CONCENTRATION AREA

Environment and Health in the Legal Amazon

It is an interdisciplinary field involving the areas of environmental and health science aiming to analyze and subsidize basic or applied knowledge of complex interactions between the  man and the Amazonian environment, considering  the use of land and the impacts of these anthropic actions on the environment and the health of its population.

 

Research Lines

Research Line 1

Models and bioindicators of air quality for the prediction of diseases related to health: It aims the validation of air quality models and their use as predictors of health related to the environment. It also aims  the analysis of indicators related to anthropogenic factors, considering different aspects of pollution of the ecosystem and its relationship with human health.

 

Research Line 2

Environmental pollutants in water and soil and related diseases: It is proposed  to analyze the influence of various pollutants from soil and water related to  Cerrado biomes, Pantanal and the Amazon in the occurrence of diseases in the exposed population, with emphasis on the use of pesticides and their contaminants (heavy metals, persistent organic pollutants and others), which are intensively used by agriculture in Mato Grosso state.
