The National Academies will conduct a workshop on the state-of the-science on exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) indoors, its health impacts, and engineering approaches and interventions to reduce exposure risks, including practical mitigation solutions in residential settings.
Key Contacts

The NASEM shall convene a planning committee of scientific experts to conduct a workshop on the state-of the-science on exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) indoors, its health impacts, and engineering approaches and interventions to reduce exposure risks, including practical mitigation solutions in residential settings. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on these topics. It shall include consideration of 

  1. the key implications of scientific research and engineering practice for public health, including potential near-term opportunities for incorporating what is known into practice; and 
  2. where additional research will be most critical to understanding indoor exposure to PM2.5 and the effectiveness of interventions. 

Opportunities for advancing research by addressing methodological and technological barriers and enhancing coordination and collaboration between the science, medical, and engineering communities will also be given attention. The indoor environments considered in this workshop will be limited to non-industrial exposure within buildings.
