During the 4 Days Marches, the team measured the effect of exercise on people with various health conditions via direct and real-time measurement of the metabolites in exhaled breath. Additionally, the researchers measured the air quality with a specially equipped cargo bike, driving next to the assigned walking routes.
Bringing research into the field can only be done as a real team effort, bringing together people with various expertises and backgrounds: from people involved in the 4 Days Marches, medical specialists, or the education centre, to our department's physicists, chemists, and data scientists.
Simona Cristescu, group leader TDLab: "I am happy and proud that my team received the award as a symbol of our accomplishments. I really enjoyed the spirit and energy of the team. A huge thanks to everyone making it a success, and the most sincere thanks to the jury members."
