Wildfire events have become more severe over the past 30 years, with smoke emissions potentially impacting the health of most of the country. Preclinical research has helped understand how inhaled toxicants from biomass combustion lead to indirect toxicity to the blood brain barrier, and further how such toxicity cascades into the brain creating persistent neuroinflammation. This talk with Matthew Campen, Director of the New Mexico Center for Metals in Biology and Medicine, will review those mechanistic studies and further detail neurological implications of such exposures.
This lecture is brought to you by the CUNY SPH Department of Environmental, Occupational, and Geospatial Health Sciences and the NYC Pandemic Response Institute.
