About CASE

The Center for Aerosol Science & Engineering (CASE) at Washington University in St. Louis is focused on the advancement of knowledge through aerosol science and technology in the areas of energy, environment, materials and health.

Aerosol science and engineering encompasses the basic principles that describe the formation, growth, evolution and transport of a system of particles suspended in a gaseous medium, and the measurement, characterization and modeling of their properties. Advances in this cross-disciplinary area of research are pivotal to improve our understanding and estimation of climate change, enhancing environmental quality, assessing health impacts and enabling advanced material synthesis.

From the Director

"Washington University in St. Louis is uniquely positioned as the global leader in aerosol engineering research and innovation. Our faculty members and research strengths have allowed us to grow our facilities and partnerships worldwide while expanding our knowledge and understanding of climate change and the effects of aerosols on our environment."
