TAC’s Environmental Exposure and Protection Group conducts applied health research focusing on air pollution and environmental exposures, including ambient air, stationary source emissions, indoor air quality, air pollution and personal exposure to particles, biologics, chemicals, light, and other environmental factors. We perform provide research and testing services in the areas of aerosol and bioaerosol physics and chemistry, analytical sciences (microbiology, organic chemistry, etc.), air quality measurements and modeling, and lighting sciences. Furthermore, we conduct research on the human health effects and impacts of aerosolized and other environmental exposures.  We have also developed and commercialized novel technologies including low-cost aerosol sensors, automated exposure testing devices, and spectrum-tunable lighting systems.
