The International Societies for Exposure Science (ISES) and Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ) are having a joint meeting August 18-22, 2019 in Kaunas, Lithuania. Grantees from both the Microbiology of the Built Environment and Chemistry of Indoor Environments programs will feature in several sessions. In addition, there will be a Sloan-sponsored session on “Integration of Biology and Chemistry for Indoor Environmental Quality” taking place on Wednesday, August 21 from 9:30 to 12:30. The program for this session is as follows:

Microbial and non-microbial volatile organic compounds from indoor materials subjected to dust and moisture Glenn Morrison UNC Chapel Hill School of Public Health
Indoor measurements and chemistry of chlorine bleach-related compounds James Mattila Colorado State University
Are Indoor Surfaces Dropping Acid or Dropping the Base? Insights into Water Films and pH for Model and Authentic Indoor Samples Madeline Cooke University of Michigan
Antibacterial Toothbrushes – What Effects do Nano-Enabled Products Have on Microbial Communities? Erica Hartmann Northwestern University
Confined built environments reveal surprising dynamics of their microbiome and resistome Alexander Mahnert Medical University of Graz
Chemical properties and transformations of complex organic mixtures deposited on indoor surfaces Rachel O’Brien William & Mary
House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry (HOMEChem): Insights into Particulate Matter Concentrations and Exposure Marina Vance University of Colorado
Real-time air monitoring of occupational exposures to indoor pollutants among U.S. hairdressers Lesiam Quirós-Alcalá University of Maryland School of Public Health
Evaluation of air sampling methods to assess pathogen contamination in agricultural animal environments Ana Rule Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
Source and composition of indoor particles: transport from outside, emissions from inside, and residual smoke in the indoor environment Peter DeCarlo Drexel University

In addition, check out posters explaining the methods and results from the ICHEAR project on Tuesday.
