Professor of Environmental Health, King's College London

Frank Kelly's research focuses on how the lung defends itself from the challenges of pollution and why, for some of us, these defences sometimes fail. Much of his current work examines the oxidant mechanisms underlying air pollution-induced lung injury.

He is trying to understand how pollutants such as ozone, nitrogen dioxide and tiny traffic-related particles interact with the lung and initiate injury.
