Jointly funded by the Steinberg Fund for Interdisciplinary Global Health Research and a gift to TISED from our benefactor Ram Panda, the TISED/GHP Innovative Solutions for Planetary Health Seed Grants program provides seed funding for research at the interface of global health and sustainable development. Research projects are led by one researcher from the Faculty of Medicine and one researcher from the Faculty of Engineering. The program funds bold and high-risk research projects at the nexus between disease, rapid environmental degradation and climate change.

Join us to hear more about the first two grants on water pollution and another on air pollution, respectively:
High speed, portable PCR system for rapid and in-situ water quality testing
Dr. Andrew Kirk, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Faculty of Engineering
Dr. Mark Trifiro, Department of Endocrinology in the Faculty of Medicine

A pilot study of the acute cardiovascular impacts of exposure to traffic-related air pollution and its oxidative potential among adults in urban Colombia
Dr. Jill Baumgartner, Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health in the Faculty of Medicine
Dr. Omid Rouhani, Department of Civil Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering

The presentations will be followed by an expert panel discussion on the challenges at the nexus of environmental degradation and human health.
