Professor Francesca Dominici, Professor Brent Coull, and Assistant Professor Cory Zigler play key roles within a new EPA-funded research center, “Regional Air Pollution Mixtures: The Past and Future Impact of Emission Controls and Climate Change on Air Quality and Health”, located at the School. Francesca and Cory will lead a project that will develop a causal inference framework to evaluate the effectiveness of past and future air pollution control strategies to achieve the greatest public health benefits. Brent will lead a project that will conduct spatial multi-resolution analyses of trends, effects of modifiable factors, climate, and particle-induced mortality in Eastern Massachusetts. The Center is an interdisciplinary effort between Harvard T.H. Chan School, the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and MIT.
Brent Coull received an NIH Conference Grant “Workshop for Junior Biostatisticians in Health Research,” supporting the continuation of this very successful mentoring workshop held in conjunction with the annual ENAR meeting. Its purpose is to enhance the skills and knowledge of junior biostatistical researchers in four key areas: interdisciplinary collaboration, publication, grant writing, and career development and promotion.
