Indoor Air Quality

Building materials emit a wide range of air pollutants and their precursors into the indoor environment, as do the animals and pests that share these buildings. Additionally, everyday activities, Image: magnified image of an indoor dust mite.such as cooking and cleaning, contribute to household and workplace pollutants. UC Davis students, staff and faculty collaborate to:

  • measure pollutants in the indoor environment
  • understand the exposures of individuals to these pollutants
  • characterize the health effects that they elicit
