Center for Environmental Research and Community Engagement

Our goal is to conduct research to benefit communities. We seek partnerships with community groups engaged in environmental justice work. Please see our site at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering’s page: https://www.cee.ucla.edu/research-centers/

FREE lead testing

Our lab offers free testing for lead in soil and or tap water. Please send a plastic bag with at least a golf ball-sized amount of soil, and/or a plastic water-tight container with at least a cup (250 mL or so) of water. These data will not be used for research. Only you will be notified of the results.

Jay Lab, 5732E Boelter Hall, UCLA, 420 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, 90095. You can email us at jennyjay@ucla.edu and zibrahim@g.ucla.edu with any questions or to let us know your sample is on the way. Include the best way for us to contact you.
