Welcome to the Center for Environmental Medicine

Welcome to the Center for Environmental Medicine, Asthma and Lung Biology. Our research focuses on the impact of environmental agents and pollutants on respiratory and systemic inflammation and physiology, which impacts airway diseases such as asthma, COPD, inhalational injury and airway infection as well as triggering cardiovascular disease. 

We conduct research studies involving human volunteers that are aimed at examining the effect of challenge and exposure to a number of environmental agents, including ozone, endotoxin, diesel exhaust and other particulates. understanding the health effects of air pollution on the lung and heart.
