As the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) tightens standards for airborne particulates, it should redirect some research and maintain an integrated study program ensuring that the most serious public health risks posed by the particles are addressed, says a new report by a committee of the National Research Council.
Clarkson University Professor Philip K. Hopke is a member of that committee, the National Research Council's Committee on Research Priorities for Airborne Particulate Matter.
A news release on the findings is available at http://www.nas.edu.
