A breath of fresh air
The University of Surrey has been awarded a share of a £2.79m grant by the EPSRC to investigate the impact of indoor and outdoor pollution on people’s physical health.
Surrey’s Global Centre for Clean Air Research (GCARE) is working with Imperial College London and other partners to research the immediate impact of pollution in the environment that immediately surrounds a person.
The INHALE project – Health Assessment across Biological Length Scales for Personal Pollution Exposure and Its Mitigation – will examine the biological and physical aspects of pollutants, and how this relates to health outcomes.
Professor Prashant Kumar, Director of GCARE at the University of Surrey, said: “As the world wakes up to the perils of climate change and the damage it does to our planet and human lives – we hope that this project will move us closer to building a world where clean air is available to all.”
