Air Pollution

The McLaughlin Centre is active in initiatives to tackle air pollution-induced health effects. These initiatives include the Re-Analysis of the Harvard Six Cities Study and The American Cancer Society Study of Particulate Air Pollution and Mortality, which is composed of a quality assurance audit and validation of the original results of those studies;  Acute Guideline Levels for Selected Airborne Chemicals (AEGLS),which composed of a NRC sub-committee on Acute Exposure Levels which has independently reviewed guidelines for more than 80 extremely hazardous substances that have been developed by various organizations; and the NERAM Colloquia Series on Air Pollution Health Effects aimed at advancing research in evidence-based policy analysis to guide air quality objectives, standard setting, clean air implementation plans and urban planning decisions.
