School of Economics and Management successfully held the "Particulate matter human health effects --- an overview" Special Report

September 24, 2015 afternoon, Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Windsor professor Xu Xiaohong of the School of Economics and Management at the invitation of the synthetic floor 207 to do the "impact of particulate matter on human health," a special report for my school teachers and students. Report chaired by Economics Professor Li Jian, vice president of administration, administered by faculty and graduate students from the school on behalf of multiple Academy attended the meeting.
At the meeting, Professor Xiaohong Xu first introduced the influence of several types of particles and particulate matter on human health, and the relationship between "exposure, dose-response" between the three, a detailed explanation of the impact of the mechanism of particulate matter on human health that pollution through atmospheric reactions particulate matter into the air and into the human body, including finer particles will direct the body's blood vessels and lungs, causing cellular response, the body produces discomfort. Then, Professor Xu for everyone to share their analysis and forecasting of future research and development of particulate matter. In a question and exchange links, our school teachers and students about their own research needs to ask questions, Professor Xu and our in-depth exchanges and patiently answer questions, and the atmosphere warm.
Through this report, our school teachers and students to enhance their understanding of particulate matter, recognizing that particulate matter on human health hazards, help to broaden horizons and thinking of scientific research.
