CLEAN AIR RESEARCH CENTERS (CLARCs)

While each CLARC will have its own research emphasis, the Centers will also work together to conduct
cross-center collaborative research.

Southeastern Center for Air Pollution and Epidemiology is a collaboration between Emory University
and the Georgia Institute of Technology. This Center will combine novel measurement techniques with air
pollution models to provide an assessment of the health risks of air pollution mixtures. Research will consider
how social conditions  (e.g. commuting, traffic, living and working locations) impact health.

Great Lakes Air Center for Integrative Environmental Research at Michigan State University is
exploring the connections between air pollution and obesity. Air pollution has been linked to increased
risk of heart attacks and strokes. Air pollution has been linked to a myriad of heart problems. This
research will focus on the effects of fine particulate matter and ozone on cardiovascular health looking
at important subpopulations at risk.

University of Washington Center for Clean Air Research is examining how pollution from roadways
affects cardiovascular health. The research will integrate exposure, epidemiological, toxicological, clinical,
and statistical sciences to study the cardiovascular hazards of recent and aged roadway emissions.
Studies will look at how social determinants and other factors (e.g., stress) potentially affect health.

Harvard University Clean Air Research Center is investigating the effects of short- and long-term
exposures to individual pollutants, pollution sources, and multi-pollutant mixtures on  the brain, cardiovascular
system, inflammation, birth weight/growth, and cardiovascular disease.  The research  will identify social
factors that may contribute to health impacts associated with air pollution.
