Discover Epidemiology and Biostatistics
As part of a research team led by Dr. Jorge Burneo, Tresah Antaya, an MSc candidate in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, has won funding via a Student Award from Lawson’s Internal Research Fund (IRF) for a new study that will examine data from the 2006 long-form Canadian census as well as environmental and health care data to determine whether long-term exposure to air pollution and city noise increases a person’s risk of developing epilepsy. In addition, the project is receiving funding through the Collaborative Research Seed Grant competition from the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University.
