Project Description

The overall goal of this project is to provide proof of concept for an external grant that aims to establish an Asia Pacific Cohort Consortium for Health Effects of Air Pollution. The aim of the consortium will be to characterize the nature of exposure response relationships for particulate matter with a diameter of less than 2.5μm (PM2.5), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and ozone (O3) in the low to high exposure range. We will seek to identify whether a minimum threshold in exposure level exists for
each of these air pollutants.
