MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY (MCS) RESEARCH AT
JAMES MADISON UNIVERSITY
Welcome to the website for the James Madison University Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) Research Team. We study the life impacts of living with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, also referred to as Environmental Illness, Chemical Injury, and Chemical Hypersensitivity. MCS is sometimes associated with Electromagnetic Sensitivity.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our psychological provider and interview studies! They have been delivered at the Southwest Conference on Disability and we are currently writing them up for journal submission. We will have new studies posted in September. Our work study is still open. Click here for our current studies page or go straight to our new study:

If you are 18 or older, we are interested in your experiences regarding accessing health care.
