Kent Pinkerton,, PhD

Position Title
Director and Professor


My research focuses on the health effects of inhaled environmental air pollutants to alter respiratory, cardiovascular and neurological structure and function. Special areas of interest include the interaction of gases and airborne particles to produce cellular and structural changes within site-specific regions and cells of the respiratory tract in both acute and chronic timeframes of exposure. I am interested in the health effects of airborne particles in an agricultural setting.
