Laboratory Research Collaboration

Thanks to an ongoing research collaboration between John Godleski, Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Health at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), and Paulo Saldiva, Professor of Pulmonary Pathology and Chair of the Department of Pathology at the Universidade de São Paulo Medical School (FMUSP), FMUSP students have the unique opportunity to conduct laboratory research on the cardiopulmonary effects of air pollution, pollution models, cardiology and other fields and to learn through a combination of didactic activities and lab work at HSPH. The initial success hosting FMUSP students resulted in Professor Godleski reaching out to fellow Harvard faculty members to join him in receiving FMUSP students in their labs and Harvard affiliated hospitals. This program is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Lemann FoundationSandanter Universidades, and CAPES.
