Environmental health research is inherently multidisciplinary and collaborative. Some of the research being done here at UC Davis in the area of air quality, air pollution and pulmonary health is being done by scientists in groups and centers identified in the following links.
Excellence in Pulmonary Research
…..For the past 40 years, UC Davis has been recognized for excellence in research in basic pulmonary toxicology and comparative lung biology. UC Davis investigators have a strong record of developing collaborative research initiatives through the School of Veterinary Medicine, the California National Primate Research Center, the School of Medicine, and the College of Engineering.
…..Facilitates research on the scientific, engineering, health, social and economic aspects of gaseous and particulate atmospheric pollutants.
…..Air pollution research and education at UC Davis focus on urban and regional smog, indoor air quality, global climate change, health and environmental effects, and intermedia transfers. Investigations span both gaseous and particulate forms of air pollution, and employ theoretical, numerical, experimental, and policy approaches. Many departments, laboratories, faculty, staff, and students are employed solving these air pollution problems in the service of industry, state and federal governments, and non-profit organizations.
…..The Air Quality Group is a research group composed of professors, professional research scientists, staff research associates, and graduate and undergraduate students from the combined disciplines of Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Atmospheric Science and Ecology. The group is supported by extramural funding and grants and/or contracts from many sources, the largest being the National Park Service (NPS), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
