Air pollution is a major environmental risk to health and is estimated by the World Health Organisation to cause approximately 2 million premature deaths worldwide per year1. By reducing severity of air pollution episodes, we can help countries reduce the burden of disease, but the links in the causal pathways between environmental hazard and disease outcome are complex.
The Urban Atmospheric Science research programme will deliver innovative environmental science with strong links to health research and the required infrastructure investments to understand and reduce the health impacts of air pollution on people in urban areas.
