On October 30, 2015, three graduates students who are doing research with me attended the conference “Global Environment: From Cell to Society” at McGill University on October 30, 2015. All three students garnered considerable interest in their work. Anna Tomczak presented her work looking at associations between long-term exposure to air pollution and lung cancer. Karena Volesky described the research conducted as part of her MSc Capstone project on e-cigarette use, while Marie-Claire Flores Pajot presented her meta-analyses on air pollution and autism. The CHAIM Centre generously provided some support to the students to participate in the conference. In addition Marie-Claire Flores Pajot won a prize for her poster on autism.
