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.
