We are delighted that our Atmospheric Environment paper on the differential toxicity of particulate air pollution has received the 2019 Haagan-Smit Prize. It is a privilege to receive such recognition on a contribution tackling an incredibly complex issue that to this day, represents one of the most challenging areas of environmental health research.Professor Frank Kelly, Co-author and Head of Department of Analytical, Environmental and Forensic Sciences

Professor Frank Kelly and Dr Julia Fussell win Haagen-Smit prize
Professor Frank Kelly and Dr Julia Fussell, School of Population Health & Environmental Sciences, have received the 2019 Haagen-Smit prize which recognises outstanding papers.
The prize was awarded for the paper Size, source and chemical composition as determinants of toxicity attributable to ambient particulate matter, which is a review of the research effort that has attempted to identify the relative toxicity of the characteristics, components and sources of particulate air pollution.
The Haagen-Smit prize was launched in 2001 and is given annually to a maximum of two papers published in Atmospheric Environment and covering different science areas.
