History

Fra indvielsen af Center for Arktisk Miljømedicin i februar 2001 ved Aarhus Universitet. Daværende centerleder Jens C Hansen lykønskes af Bent Harvald.

Centre for Arctic Environmental Medicine (CAM) was established as an informal research unit at Aarhus University on February 1, 2001. The aim was to draw attention to the scientific activities within the field of Arctic environmental medicine, which had taken place at the Department of Environmental and Occupational Medicine since the end of the 1970's.

In 2001 the Centre was founded as a formal research Centre (see picture) and located at the Department of Environmental and Occupational Medicine, Aarhus University, and with an office at the Primary Health Care Clinic in Nuuk, and since 2002 with an office at the Greenland Institute of National Resources.

In 2008, the Unit of Molecular and Cellular Toxicology was integrated with CAM. Later, the name was changed to 'Centre for Arctic Health and Molecular Epidemiology' (CAHME).

In 2012, CAHME was included in the cross faculty Arctic Research Centre (ARC) at Aarhus University as the representing unit of the Health Faculty.
