Our Mission

In October 2005, the Environmental Protection Agency awarded Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health a multi-year STAR grant to study airborne particulate matter. The conceptual foundation of the Center lies in our ability to map the risks posed by particulate matter (PM) exposure across the United States. Over the five years of funding, the Center’s researchers will identify those areas in the United States where PM exposure poses greater and lesser estimated risks to human health, collect and characterize particles in these locations, and assess their toxicity in a battery of assays relevant to pulmonary and cardiovascular outcomes.
