On Tuesday 18 February 2020, M.J. Lubczyńska will defend her PhD dissertation, entitled: ‘Down The Road: air pollution exposure, and child's neuropsychological and neurobiological development’.
Exposure to outdoor air pollution is an increasingly recognized risk factor for neuropsychological disorders. Understanding the associations between early life exposure to outdoor air pollution and neuropsychological development, as well as understanding the mechanisms underlying such associations, is crucial, yet insufficient to date. The objective of the work presented in this thesis, was to expand the current body of evidence and fill several identified gaps in knowledge. For this aim, five studies were carried out which are presented in the results section of this thesis.
The public defence will take place at the Prof. Andries Queridoroom, 3rd floor Education Center, Erasmus MC. The ceremony will begin exactly at 15.30 hrs. In light of the solemn nature of the ceremony, we recommend that you do not take children under the age of 6 to the first part of the ceremony.
