Southern California Particle Center

University of California - Los Angeles

At the Southern California Particle Center, center researchers will investigate the underlying mechanisms that produce the health effects associated with exposure to particulate matter, and attempt to understand how toxic mechanisms and resulting health effects vary with the source, chemical composition and physical characteristics of particulate matter.
