Phd asthma & air quality

main objectives and expected impact

This PhD aims to develop a monitoring system for bronchial asthma patients and their individual exposure to air pollutants commonly found in urban areas.

This monitoring platform, ultimately, whishes to be the best company for those suffering from bronchial asthma so that they can get to know their own case better and avoid undesired health situations. And on the other hand, aims to be part of the clinic environments for diagnosis and treatment protocols in pneumology units.
