Title of Collaborative Activity:

Assessment of Inhalation Exposures to Indoor and Occupational Aerosols

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The primary goal of this collaboration is to study inhalation exposures to indoor and occupational aerosols, with a current focus on characterizing the health hazards associated with exposure to common fungal contaminants. NIOSH uses a specially developed exposure system to conduct subchronic toxicology studies following repeated exposure to molds identified by the NTP as a public health concern. Subprojects under this IAA are examining the association of exposure to mycotoxins and health by analyzing indoor air samples, developing biomarkers of exposure and response, and using genomic sequencing methodologies to assess fungal diversity associated with the built environment.
