Core Director: Clifford Weisel, PhD
The CEF generates environmental exposures both for human and experimental animal studies. Initially supported by grants to Center investigators (N. Fiedler, DOD; H. Kipen, EPA), this facility was restructured as an independent Facility Core with expanded capabilities in terms of the types of atmospheres that can be generated. The Controlled Exposure Facilities Core is key to the ability the Center to perform complementary basic laboratory and clinical studies. Studies using ozone and diesel exhaust are ongoing in the Cardiopulmonary Disease Core.
