Determining the effects of airborne particulates on immune and barrier epithelial cell function

 

Theme: Aerosols and Health

Start date: Cohort 1: 2019

Supervisors: Prof. Sheena Cruickshank (Manchester) and Dr. Alberto Gambaruto (Bristol)

Airborne pollution is a complex mixture of biological and chemical sources but their specific effects on immune function are relatively poorly understood. This exciting cross disciplinary project will define the components of pollutants and explore their impact on immune cells
