SNBC


Register for the webinar HERE

The air microbiome, especially in light of Covid-19 transmission, can be managed and influenced for environmental and human impact.

About this event

Join us for the second in a series of webinars looking at the challenges and opportunities offered by studying, managing and influencing the air microbiome. This webinar is hosted by the National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC), Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) and Singapore National Biofilm Consortium (SNBC).


The webinar will start at 9am UK time and 4pm SG time.

Who is this event for?

This webinar will be of interest to researchers, companies and regulators involved in either studying or directly influencing and intervening in the air microbiome in different contexts and climatic conditions.

Why attend?

There will be presentations on a number of aspects of, bioaerosols and the air microbiome and their impact on public health, from the UK and Singapore. Beyond scientific sharings, members of the Singapore COVID-19 Cleaning and Disinfectant Industry Task Force will be on hand to share their practical experiences and advice in usage of surface disinfectants during this pandemic. Your questions can be answered during the Q&A session.
