EAA Working Groups

WG 4: Aerosols and Health


Chair: Mar Viana


While aerosols may lead to adverse health effects, they can also have therapeutic uses; thus aerosols and health are closely linked. Understanding the relationships between exposure and effects is key to understanding and mitigating health impacts.


The Working Group warmly promotes and facilitates interdisciplinary communications to exchange information in diverse fields such as physics, chemistry, medicine, biology, pharmacy, toxicology, epidemiology, exposure science, engineering, and others.
