Development of land use regression models for estimating retrospective and prospective air pollution exposure in Tucson

The goal of this project is to create air pollution maps by measuring NOx, PM2.5, and PM10 concentrations in the Tucson area, and then use this data in a land use regression analysis to model air pollution concentrations to assess various health metrics from multiple ARC cohorts, including: the Children’s Respiratory Study (CRS), Infant Immune Study (IIS), and Tucson Epidemiological Study of Airway Obstructive Disease (TESAOD). Study procedures are adapted from the ESCAPE study.

UA Science Internship Pairs High School Students, Research Mentors

Each year many SWEHSC researchers host high school students in their laboratories. Facility managers assits them process their samples and understand their data. SWEHSC members teach them about toxicology and environmental health. The program was designed by the SWEHSC Outreach Core and is conducted in collaboration with the BIO5 Instutue.
