Mobile Content Enabled

Dr. Peden is principal investigator for an ongoing study, “Human Health Effects of Environmental Pollutants.”   This study is a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “to better understand the effect of a number of air pollutants on human health.  This includes studies with volunteers exposed to a number of low-level pollutants to see how these impact health. We also test the effect of certain medications on response to pollutants and examine if people with asthma or certain genetic factors have increased risk for pollutant-induced disease.”
