Research Center for Environmental Pollutants (RCEP)
Growing of development index can cause harmful effects on human and environments in the scale of global, regional and national. Emerging pollutants as environmental pollution treat for human health and environments. However, decision making in this situation, especially in developing countries, should be on scientific and research foundations. To respond to these needs, Research Center for Environmental Pollutants (RCEP) as one of the research centers of Qom University of Medical Sciences was established. RCEP was officially approved on November-December 2011 by the Vice-chancellor for Researches and Technologies and definite approval of this center was obtained on December 2017.
