INHALE


INHALE will assess the impact of pollution on personal health in urban environments.

This multidisciplinary research project will develop a physics based, multi-scale approach across biological length scales from the cell, lung, person up to the neighbourhood scale.

The research involves integrated modelling of pollution and air-flow. It will look at the effect of interventions such as roadside hedges or medication for at-risk people such as asthmatics. INHALE will examine pollutants’ potential for cell and tissue damage, and how this relates to health outcomes.
