World Trade Center Particulate Matter Induced Cardiorespiratory and Vascular Dysfunction: a MultiOmic Approach

Project Number
1 U01 OH011855-01 A1
NYU School of Medicine
Fiscal Year Awarded
Project Duration
5 year


World Trade Center (WTC) site destruction caused an intense particulate matter (PM) exposure. Since PM is responsible for a high percentage of cardiorespiratory disease/death we propose to investigate the development of WTC-PM induced cardiorespiratory and vascular dysfunction (WTC-CaRVD) in the FDNY cohort. Our proposal will identify biologically plausible therapeutic targets of oxidative stress and clinical phenotypes of WTC-CaRVD; which falls squarely within the purview of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act.

Study Design: Case-Control
