17-1 Assessing Adverse Health Effects of Exposure to Traffic-Related Air Pollution, Noise, and Their Interactions With Socio-Economic Status

Status: 
Not Active
Number: 
RFA 17-1

HEI is seeking to fund health studies to assess adverse health effects of short and/or long term exposure to traffic-related air pollution. The studies should consider spatially correlated factors that may either confound or modify the health effects of traffic-related air pollution, most notably, traffic noise, socioeconomic status, and factors related to the built environment, such as presence of green space. 

Request for Applications 17-1: Assessing Adverse Health Effects of Exposure to Traffic-Related Air Pollution, Noise (etc) provides up to 4 years of funding for up to 5 studies with a funding cap of $1,000,000 each.

Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal)

Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal)

In this study, the investigators will recruit pregnant women in Barcelona and assess the effects of in-utero exposure to traffic-related pollution on birth weight, fetal growth trajectories, and placental function for each pregnancy. The investigators will estimate exposure to several pollutants and transportation noise and evaluate the roles of socioeconomic status, green space, physical activity, diet, and stress.

University of Southern California

This study will assess the effects of metals from nontailpipe emissions on asthma and lung function in the most recent cohort of the Children’s Health Study in Southern California (recruited during 2002-2012), using available filters with particulate matter samples. The investigators will estimate exposure to several pollutants and transportation noise and evaluate the roles of socioeconomic status, green space, physical activity, diet, and stress.
