iSniff: Pocket-Size Pollution Sensors Promise Big Improvement in Monitoring Personal Environment
“This fall, dozens of nine- and 10-year-olds will be set loose on the streets and in the schools of New York City with new monitors co-developed by Chillrud, Cowin and their respective teams. Each device features technologies designed to pinpoint not only what children are exposed to, but when, where and for how long. Chillrud is one of eight grantees currently refining personal airborne pollution sensors as part of the National Institute of Environmental Health Service’s (NIEHS) Genes and Environment Initiative—a project aimed at gaining an improved understanding of how genetic factors and environmental exposures influence human disease.”
