Professor, Epidemiology
Professor, General Internal Medicine
Dr. Kaufman is a physician-epidemiologist, board-certified in internal medicine and occupational medicine. He has been a full-time faculty member at the UW since 1997, currently holding appointments in the Departments of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences, and Medicine (General Internal Medicine), and Epidemiology. He is the director of the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program, in both the School of Public Health and the School of Medicine.

His current research activities are primarily focused on environmental factors in cardiovascular and respiratory disease. He is the principal investigator of a major epidemiological prospective cohort study of air pollution and cardiovascular disease (The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis and Air Pollution, or “MESA Air”). He is also principal investigator of an NIH-funded Specialized Center for Research at the University of Washington on Cardiovascular Disease and Traffic-Related Air Pollution. He directs the UW Northlake Controlled Exposure Facility, a facility customized for experimental inhalation toxicology studies on health effects of combustion products including diesel exhaust.

Dr. Kaufman’s research integrates the disciplines of epidemiology, exposure sciences, toxicology, and clinical medicine.

Epidemiologic study of air pollution and cardiovascular disease
Dr. Kaufman directs a major epidemiological study of air pollution, atherosclerosis and clinical cardiovascular disease. The project involves state-of-the-art assessment of cardiovascular disease in a multi-ethnic population, combined with sophisticated air pollution measurements and modeling. See MESA Air Pollution.

Effects of diesel exhaust on asthma and endothelial function
Dr. Kaufman directs an inhalation toxicology facility addressing health effects of diesel exhaust in human subjects. See Diesel Exhaust Controlled Exposure Laboratory and EPA National Center for Environmental Research.

Cardiovascular Disease and Traffic-Related Air Pollution
Dr. Kaufman is the principal investigator of an NIH-funded Specialized Center for Research at the University of Washington on Cardiovascular Disease and Traffic-Related Air Pollution. The Center integrates basic science, clinical research, and epidemiologic research on this subject in order to better understand environmental health effects and create opportunities to translate findings into practical benefits. See DISCOVER Center.
