    'Indoor exposures and Health' Course

    New insights in indoor microbial exposure measurements and health effects from exposure to chemical and biological agents in schools and homes
    1.5 day course in Barcelona, Spain, organized by the HITEA indoor air pollution consortium. February 14-15 2013.

    The course aims at professionals involved in indoor air related issues such as public health experts (physicians, health scientists, hygienists), but is open for participants with a research background. The course attempts to involve individuals from relevant associations and societies, such as the ERS (European Respiratory Society) and ISIAQ (International society for Indoor Air Quality). Rather than being a one-time event, this course is intended to be established as an annual or bi-annual event, an initiative that has received preliminary support from ISIAQ.
    The focus of the course will be on biological and chemical agents in indoor environments such as schools and residential homes, their assessment and impact on health. Specific focus will be given to issues related to use of cleaning agents in indoor environments, ventilation and CO2 in schools, schools in the city environment (fine particulate matter and NOx) and dampness, humidity and the microbial climate in the school and homes. With regard to the latter, rapid developments in measurement and sampling techniques (molecular approaches) opened new avenues for studying microbial exposures in indoor environments and related microbial exposures to health endpoints. The results of recent studies will be reviewed and discussed with the participants.

    Faculty., in alphabetic order:
    Dick Heederik (scientific chair). Jordi Sunyer (local organizer),

    The meeting has the following tentative programme:
    Dick Heederik, D.J.J. (Dick) general introduction to the course and exposure assessment issues
    Gert Doekes - markers for fungal exposure
    Martin Taubel - DNA based methods in microbial exposure assessment
    Anne Hyvärinen - healthy housing guidelines in Finland and rapid mold detection?
    Martin Taubel - indoor exposure to mycotoxins
    Kati Huttunen - toxicological properties of indoor dust
    Joachim Heinrich - Indoor Exposure and Asthma in Childhood: an overview
    Juha Pekkanen - microbial exposure and health: home dampness
    Jan-Paul Zock - indoor exposure to cleaning agents
    PavelWargocky - ventilation and indoor air quality
    Nicole Janssen - outdoor/indoor air-pollution relations
    Torben Sigsgaard - Of Moulds and mites - Indoor air and health in Danish children
    Jordi Sunyer - Indoor school air and traffic pollution
    Participants are asked to contribute with a small fee to cover costs for the location and lunch . The meeting aims at 30-60 participants at most.
