ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan is getting $9.5 million to study the impact of the environmental factors on children’s health.

The Ann Arbor school announced Monday that will serve as one of six national research hubs over the next four years as part of the new National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ Children’s Health Exposure Analysis Resource program, or CHEAR.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences is part of the National Institutes of Health.

Through the Michigan hub of the CHEAR Laboratory Network, called M-CHEAR, the school will support scientists across the country whose research focuses on the causes of preterm birth, reproductive tract anomalies, obesity, asthma, allergies, autism and other problems.
