January 2018: Allan Just Awarded NIEHS Supplement

Dr. Allan Just

Congratulations to Dr. Allan Just who received an NIEHS Supplement for his study “Hourly Temperature Dynamics from Satellites and Risk of Cardiovascular Events.” This supplement proposes a new collaboration between the NIEHS-funded Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. This collaborative project will extend methods for estimating daily temperature at high resolution across large regions by utilizing additional NASA satellite measurements to generate hourly estimates of temperature. This more detailed temperature record can be used in health studies to further consider temperature dynamics (including rapid changes in temperature) as a stressor in both chronic and acute health outcomes.
