The workshop on “Future Research Directions in Health and Air Pollution” was held on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at the Zoa House in Tel Aviv.
The workshop brought together researchers and professionals in the field to examine the directions in which research on exposure assessment and the health effects of air pollution is heading and to discuss the local research needed to improve air quality in Israel. The guest speaker at the workshop was Prof. Jeremy Sarnat from Emory University. Prof. Sarnat has been conducting research in the field of air pollution and its health effects for over 20 years and his latest studies focus on the biological mechanisms underlying these effects.
