Programme

Quantifying and measuring the sources of respiratory infection (30th Sept)

02:00pm

Keynote Speaker – Linsey Marr, Virginia Tech, USA

03:30pm

Research topics to include:

  • How are respiratory aerosols and droplets generated in the body and measured?
  • How are aerosols formed in aerosol generating procedures in occupational settings?

How does pathogen source relate to exposure – droplets/ aerosols/ fomites?
