Helen H. SuhAssociate Professor and Interim Department Chair
- Department of Health Sciences
Professor Suh is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Sciences at Northeastern. She is also adjunct faculty at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and a Senior Fellow at NORC at the University of Chicago, reflective of the work that she continues to perform in her previous positions. Dr. Suh is an internationally recognized expert in air pollution health effects, having led multidisciplinary teams in environmental exposure assessment and epidemiology for over 20 years. Dr. Suh’s research focuses on three general areas within air pollution health effects, including (1) assessment of the impact of lifestyle and neighborhoods on air pollutant exposures and human health, (2) examination of multi-pollutant impacts on human health, and (3) development of GIS-based spatio-temporal modeling tools for epidemiological research. Her work has been published in over 100 papers in leading environmental health journals. Dr. Suh performs advisory work in environmental health for numerous local, national, and international organizations. Currently, Dr. Suh is a member of the charter US Environmental Protection Agency Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee and the Institute of Medicine Committee to Review the Health Effects in Vietnam Veterans of Herbicide Exposure. She is also Associate Editor of the International Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology.

Selected Research/Scholarship Projects:
- “Multi-City Analyses of Pollutant Properties and Cause-Specific Hospital Admissions” sponsored by EPRI. The study investigates whether toxicity of fine particle (PM2.5) components is related to their chemical properties and does so using data from three cities participating in the Aerosol Research and Inhalation Epidemiology Study (ARIES). For each city, we categorized air pollutants by their chemical properties and examined the impacts of these chemical properties on the risk of daily hospital admissions using a novel two-stage approach. The first stage applies a case-crossover analysis of all measured pollutants and cause-specific hospital admissions data. In the second state, pollutants were subsequently assigned to relevant pollutant categories based on their chemical properties, with categories that met a set of pre-established criteria (alkanes, aldehydes, microcrystalline oxides, transition metals, combustible, aromatic, acidic, polar non-aldehydes, inert pollutants, cyclohexanes, etc.) included in subsequent analyses. Pollutant specific slopes were subsequently regressed on these categories. Results from this study helps to characterize air pollutants by their toxicity and through this characterization will further our understanding of air pollution health impacts and their efficient control.
- “Measurement Errors in Environmental Epidemiology” sponsored by the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences. Our research is intended to improve our understanding of environmental risks, leading to improved disease prevention, through the development and application of statistical methods for adjustment for bias due to measurement error. In this effort, we compiled an external exposure validation data set across time and space using measured personal exposures (gold standard), ambient concentrations, and biomarkers, collected from a large number of U.S. cities and, separately, the Netherlands and MESA-Air. This study will provide valuable tools through which chronic air pollution risks can be more accurately and precisely estimated.
- “Data Linkages in the National Children’s Study” sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The National Children’s Study will examine the effects of the environment, as broadly defined to include factors such as air, water, diet, sound, family dynamics, community and cultural influences, and genetics on the growth, development, and health of children across the United States, following them from before birth until age 21 years. The goal of the Study is to improve the health and well-being of children and contribute to understanding the role various factors have on health and disease. The study has the potential to support breakthrough research on the factors affecting child health, including genetics and a wide range of environmental influences. The National Children’s Study is data-driven, evidence-based, and community and participant informed. Ultimately, the National Children’s Study will be one of the richest research efforts geared towards studying children’s health and development and will form the basis of child health guidance, interventions, and policy for generations to come.
