About Karl Kilbo Edlund
My research projects explore cardiovascular and renal effects of air pollution. I'm interested in the interplay between environmental determinants and human health, on both macro- and microscopic levels – everything from climate change to street-side air pollution. My thesis work focuses on epidemiological characteristics of the association between air pollutant exposures and atherosclerosis, plaque formation, cardiovascular mortality and morbidity, renal function, and kidney failure. My main work uses data from the SCAPIS cohort, but I also work with a few other local and national cohorts.
