The fifth issue of our newsletter showcases some of the research tools being developed by EHEN scientists, including a road traffic prediction model for air and noise pollution, and a cloth patch that can measure workers’ exposure to chemicals.
As the potential of these tools to understand our environmental exposures becomes clearer, EHEN’s work is gaining attention among the public. In September an interactive air-pollution map of Europe was published by a UK national newspaper, in collaboration with EHEN scientists.
EHEN research is gaining increasing traction beyond the scientific community. Recent publications offering insights into the effectiveness of HPV vaccination campaigns, and the effect of prenatal exposures on childhood growth are just a few examples of how exposome research could inform future public health policies.
