2015 Pilot Projects

Keith Bein, PhD Air Quality Research Center Facilitating real-time exposure studies on traffic related air pollution

Toxicological studies continue to demonstrate links between exposures to traffic related air pollution (TRAP), including gases and particles, and various metrics of adverse pulmonary, cardiovascular and neurological health effects.

New research on wildfires in California

We know what natural wildfire smoke is composed of, but we have no idea what will be in urban wildfire smoke. We expect it to be very different.” Keith Bein, UC Davis Air Quality Research Center

 

Researchers at the UC Davis Environmental Health Sciences Center (EHSC) are working with communities across California to study the physical and emotional impacts wildfires have had on survivors over the past several years. Research is ongoing and will incorporate new wildfires as they erupt.
