Dr. Michael Brauer has won the Jerome J. Wesolowski Award, which recognizes sustained and outstanding contributions to the knowledge and practice of human exposure assessment, from the International Society of Exposure Science.
Dr. Jerome J. Wesolowski was one of the founding members of the International Society of Exposure Analysis and served as a Councilor on the Board of Directors from 1991 to 1993 and as the liaison with ISEA International Territorial Chapters from 1992 until his death in 1994.

His research focuses on linkages between the built environment and human health, with specific interest in transportation-related and biomass air pollution, the global health impacts of air pollution and the relationships between multiple exposures mediated by urban form (air pollution, noise, greenness) and population health. He has participated in monitoring and epidemiological studies throughout the world and served on advisory committees to the World Health Organization, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, the US National Academy of Sciences, the Royal Society of Canada, the International Joint Commission and governments in North America and Asia.
