Seminar – Air pollution and health in the 21st Century

Wed 6 December 2023

MRC Epidemiology Unit

All are invited to the free hybrid MRC Epidemiology Seminar 'Air pollution and health in the 21st Century' with Dr Gary Fuller, UKRI Clean Air Champion at Imperial College London.

About this talk
Over 70 years after London’s great smog we are still wrestling the impacts of air pollution on our health. More than 60,000 scientific papers have been published on air pollution and health. Over half of these have been published in the last decade, but air pollution policy and action lags behind and remains largely framed in the science of the 20th century and not the 21st.

As researchers it is tempting to focus on what we don’t know, including gaps in our epidemiological evidence. However, there is ample evidence that actions to improve air pollution also improve health.

About Dr Fuller
Gary Fuller is a three UKRI Clean Air Champions working to provide leadership and coordination across the Clean Air Programme and within the wider research and stakeholder community.

His research interests focus on urban air pollution, how it is changing and how it affects our health.

Gary is passionate about communicating air pollution science to policymakers and the public. He is a member of Defra’s Air Quality Expert Group and a regular contributor to the Guardian newspaper.
