Bioaerosols – Focus Meeting 15 – Due to the likely spread of the coronavirus in the next few weeks,
this event will now be delivered on-line.
The presence of microorganisms in air is taken for granted, but understanding the identities, distribution and abundance of airborne microorganisms remains in its infancy. However recent rapid advances in molecular biology have the potential to enable enhanced characterisation and rapid quantification of bioaerosols. Biological particles in the atmosphere may be altered by atmospheric chemical processes and have the potential to act as cloud condensation or ice nuclei. Bioaerosols in both the indoor and outdoor environments have a range of detrimental health effects associated with them.
Bioaerosol research is increasingly interdisciplinary and involves aerosol physics, microbiology, molecular biology, environmental science, occupational and public health and others. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together this mix of researchers to present exciting new work and discuss the challenges that still exist in bioaerosol research.
