Congratulations to Dr. Jennifer Keir on defending her PhD thesis

Congratulations to Dr. Jennifer Keir (University of Ottawa) for her successful PhD defence!

Dr. Keir’s groundbreaking research on, Firefighters’ exposures to combustion-derived polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and other mutagens, has made a tremendous impact on the fire service!

Read Dr. Keir’s published papers on firefighters’ exposures during firefighting:

1. Effectiveness of dermal cleaning interventions for reducing firefighters’ exposures to PAHs and genotoxins (2023).

2. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) and metal contamination of air and surfaces exposed to combustion emissions during emergency fire suppression: Implications for firefighters’ exposures (2020).

3. Elevated Exposures to Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Other Organic Mutagens in Ottawa Firefighters Participating in Emergency, On-Shift Fire Suppression (2017).
