Two Yale environmental scientists were among eight who will share $3.6 million in grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The Outstanding New Environmental Scientist Award supports early-career scientists who make long-term commitments to environmental health research.
Michelle L. Bell, Ph.D., assistant professor of environmental health and of epidemiology and public health, will study the relationship between outdoor concentrations of ozone and the incidence of respiratory disease and death in exposed populations. Sven-Eric Jordt, Ph.D., assistant professor of pharmacology, will study the ways in which airborne pollutants interact with sensory nerve cells to cause eye, nose and throat irritation.
