Johns Hopkins Particulate Matter Research Center

The Johns Hopkins University

The Johns Hopkins Particulate Matter Research Center will map health risks of PM across the US based on analyses of national databases on air pollution, mortality, and hospitalization, and then use the maps to guide detailed monitoring and collection of PM samples for physical, chemical, and biological characterization in assays relevant to pulmonary and cardiovascular outcomes.
