The EPA has awarded $32 million to fund four new clean air research centers at universities for the purpose of studying air pollution health effects. It is important to understand the health risks associated with exposure to multiple air pollutants because people are exposed to more than one pollutant at a time.
“These centers are critical to understanding how to improve air quality and protect Americans’ health from complex mixtures of air pollutants,” said Dr. Paul Anastas, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Research and Development. “The centers will focus on important scientific questions remaining in air research.”
Each center will receive approximately $8 million over five years. They are located at:
- Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga.
- Harvard University, Boston, Mass.
- Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich.
- University of Washington, Seattle, Wash.
