The Center for Advancing Research in Transportation Emissions, Energy, and Health (CARTEEH) focuses on the impact of transportation emissions on human health. CARTEEH is a Tier-1 center, funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of the Secretary for Research and Technology (OST-R) under the University Transportation Centers (UTC) program. The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) leads the CARTEEH consortium consisting of four partner universities: Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Georgia Institute of Technology (GT), University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), and the University of California, Riverside (UCR).
CARTEEH brings together experts from two disciplines that have not traditionally worked together – transportation and public health. Members of the CARTEEH consortium strongly advocate for advancing research on transportation emissions in a more comprehensive manner, mapping the holistic tailpipe-to-lungs spectrum, which includes the impact of transportation emissions on the environment and public health.
