Mitochondriomics as chronicle of early-life ambient air pollution exposure and effects on cardiovascular and cognitive function in childhood Hasselt University
Epidemiological research towards a better understanding of the relationship between air pollution and human health. KU Leuven
In the past few decades, exposure to air pollution has been found to be associated with all-cause mortality, cardiovascular and respiratory morbidity, both in the short term (acute exposure) and the long term (chronic exposure). According to the most recent report by the World Health Organisation (WHO, 2014), 3.7 million deaths worldwide and per year are attributed to ambient air pollution, placing it in the top 10 of risk ...

Development of user-friendly calibration techniques for the determination of biogenic and antropogenic volatile organic compounds in ambient air Ghent University
De aim is of the collaboration is to develop multicomponent calibration systems for the determination of VOCs in ambient air, more specifically compounds with weak stability. As a basis, a dynamic diffusion system is targeted that allows calibrating unstable compounds simultaneously.
