Authors:

John D. Spengler, Ph. D., is Director of Enviromental Science and Engineering at Harvard University. A pioneer in the early efforts to establish indoor air quality as an important area of health concerns in the United States, he has expertise in health and exposure risk assessment of air pollution and the indoor and outdoor environments.

Jonathan M. Samet, M.D., M.S., is chairman of the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. A pulmonary physician and epidemiologist, he has focused his research on the health effects of pollutants in indoor and outdoor environments and on environmental risk assessment.

John F. McCarthy, Sc.D., C.I.H., is president of Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc., of Newton, Massachusetts, a company that has investigated environmental quality in more than 4000 buildings since 1988. Dr. McCarthy is an expert in the characterization of complex pollutant exposures, use of biological markers in exposure assessment, aerosol technology, control of toxic air pollutants, the development of health and safety programs and building commissioning.
