Clearing the air A 2-year study of indoor and urban air quality by the GBRL and STAR Labs leads to improvements in indoor air quality in a local middle school
The Green Building Research Laboratory houses facilities for both fundamental research and applied measurements in support of building sustainability

The Green Building Research Lab (GBRL) is the research laboratory of Dr. Elliott Gall, Assistant Professor in the Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department at PSU. The GBRL is a facility where researchers work to solve the fundamental and applied research questions related to indoor and urban air quality, sustainable buildings, and human exposure to air pollution.

Find out more about ongoing research in building science and related fields at Portland State in the links on the left. Follow Dr. Gall on twitter (@etgall) to stay up to date about happenings in GBRL research or check out the "News" section of the website. 

There are a few ways to work with the GBRL and support our activities:
