UMDNJ-EOHSI is partner university within the FAA Center of Excellence on Airliner Cabin Environment Research. The Center’s goal is to conduct scientific research to support FAA’s and the flight industry’s mandates to promote a healthy and safe environment for the flying public and crew within the commercial airline cabin. The partner universities have conducted research ozone and ozone chemistry, pesticides, cabin pressure, causes of incidents, developing sensors, disinfection, contaminant transport, and disease transmission within aircraft. Currently EOHSI is conducting projects on exposure to ozone and it by-products, pesticides, and flame retardants within the aircraft cabin and developing risk assessment paradigm that can be applied to chemical or biological agents within an aircraft through a combination of measurement and modeling techniques.
