An integral component of the Center is the development of laboratory-generated atmospheres for experimental exposures of animals and humans. This Project will develop these atmospheres, with the primary objective of simulating environments containing key components of roadway emissions and the products of environmental factors that transform them. The exposures will help determine air contaminants that cause or potentiate the toxicity of roadway emissions or confound interpretations based on exposure defined by roadway proximity alone. The work that currently is under way is related to Aims 1 and 2 defined below.
The dose and mixture response studies will be completed in conjunction with Project 3. In parallel, mixed atmospheres will be generated to determine the physical and chemical transformation. These atmospheres will be characterized in collaboration with Project 1, and the results will be related to field observations from Project 1.
