The Technion Center of Excellence in Exposure Science and Environmental Health (TCEEH) supports state-of-the-art research in exposure science (ES) and environmental health (EH), particularly in air pollution and its related health outcomes. The Center focuses on the inhalation route of human exposure and advances research on aggregate exposure to environmental pollutants, specifically in response to cultural and geo-meteorological conditions found in Israel.
The Center was established in 2011 as a joint collaboration between the Technion’s Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and the Ruth and Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine following a generous contribution from the Environment and Health Fund.
The concept of using a wireless distributed sensor network (WDSN) for measuring traffic-related air pollutants at breathing height is explored
Atmospheric fate of pesticides is determined using combined field and laboratory experiments
Integrating traffic data with monitoring data yields more detailed air pollution information in time and space
Development of sensor-based Citizens’ Observatory Community
for improving quality of life in cities
