Program Goals

The IAQ staff conducts policy-driven research on a variety of indoor air quality issues.  Areas of current emphasis and research include:

• Reduction of exposures to airborne chemicals in indoor environments, especially “volatile organic compounds” or VOCs emitted from building materials and consumer    products;
• Characterization of building ventilation system performance, review of building codes, and promotion of enhanced indoor air quality in buildings;
• Assessment, clean-up, and prevention of indoor mold and other asthma triggers related to building moisture problems;
• Studies on environmental conditions in schools as well as promotion of enhanced classroom IAQ;
• Engineering and policy controls for indoor smoking exposures;
• Prevention building-related illnesses (e.g., legionellosis and tuberculosis).
