Guide to MoBE talks and sessions at Indoor Air 2018

So Indoor Air 2018 is fast approaching (June 22-27th) and there are a large number of MoBE-relevant talks on the menu.  The preliminary program for the entire conference can be found here.  Paula Olsiewski from the Sloan Foundation sent us a list this morning of the talks relevant to the Sloan funded microbiology of the built environment (MoBE) program and the Chemistry of Indoor Environments (CIE) program.  Be sure to check them out if you’re at the meeting!



Allen Goldstein (MoBE and CIE)  is the Monday plenary speaker at 8:30 am.
