Welcome guest speaker Jeremy Sarnat, Sc.D.
Jeremy Sarnat, Sc.D.
Dr. Sarnat is an Associate Professor of Environmental Health at the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University and the Director of the Southeastern Center for Air Pollution and Epidemiology (SCAPE), based jointly at Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology. His research focuses primarily on measuring exposures and acute health response of urban air pollution in various populations, in particular panels of sensitive cohorts such as children, older adults, and individuals with cardiorespiratory disease.
High-resolution metabolomics (HRM) has emerged as a promising analytical platform for measuring environmental exposures and corresponding biological response. In this presentation, Dr. Sarnat will share findings from a series of recent panel-based studies of traffic-related pollution conducted using untargeted HRM and traditional targeted methods, and the potential of both approaches to contribute towards a more complete understanding of disease etiology associated with this pollution source.
