In addition to the Director, Prof. Paul Elliott (Imperial) and Deputy Director, Prof. Frank Kelly (King’s), the Centre includes 16 Senior Investigators and 13 Investigators across Imperial, King’s, SGUL and LSHTM. Expertise covers environmental, respiratory, occupational, cardiovascular and air pollution epidemiology, environmental modelling/Geographical Information Systems (GIS), biostatistics, biomarkers, mechanistic research, environmental and inhalational toxicology, and policy. There are also 15 Centre Lecturers from a range of disciplines, and a number of senior affiliated members who provide additional expertise in, for example, environmental engineering and waste management, meteorology, and climate change research
