New EPA-Funded Research Center

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 the Harvard T.H. Chan School, the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and MIT.
