This is the latest in the joint webinar series from National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC), Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) and Singapore National Biofilm Consortium (SNBC). This webinar ‘Studying and Controlling the Microbiome of the Air’ will address the emerging area of the microbiome of the air and how to investigate and control this environment.

It is increasingly recognised that the air is not just a space though which organisms are transmitted but that it has its own population dependent on location and environment. Our speakers will consider approaches to investigating the air and controlling its microbial composition.

Who is this webinar for?

This will be of interest to anyone in industry and academia with an interest in transmission of bacteria and viruses in both outdoor and built environment and what the evidence is starting to tell us about this field and the future work that is needed.

Speakers

We have four speakers from the UK and Singapore, giving 15-minute overviews of their work or business:

  1. Prof Stephan Schuster – Deputy Centre Director (Facilities & Capacities); Research Director (Meta-‘omics & Microbiomes), Professor, School of Biological Sciences, NTU, Singapore
  2. Current challenges of monitoring the microbial quality of air in the built environment’ from Dr Angela Sherry – Vice-Chancellor Senior Fellow in the Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment (HBBE) at Northumbria University UK
  3. ‘Diel cycle of indoor bioaerosol dynamics as a proxy for unpolluted indoor environment’ from Dr Irvan Luhung – Research Fellow, Meta-‘omics & Microbiomes cluster, SCELSE, Singapore
  4. ‘The challenges in gaining evaluation and approval of Citrix as an approach to safely misting to the control of air microbiome’ from Richard Thomas – Managing Director, Citrox Biosciences Ltd, UK
