BOHS 11th Inhaled Particles symposium
29 April 2013
The British Occupational Hygiene Society's (BOHS) 11th Inhaled Particles symposium will take place at Nottingham Conference Centre on 23-25 September 2013. Since the first symposium was held in 1960, the meetings have witnessed all of the key developments in occupational and public health associated with airborne particles.
Professor Ken Donaldson, Chair of the IPXI Scientific Committee, said: "IPXI will seek to continue its fine tradition of over fifty years, bringing together leading researchers on the adverse effects of particles on the lungs and extrapulmonary target tissues to showcase cutting edge research and debate solutions to the challenges faced within particle research and risk assessment." Key speakers include Dr Michael Attfield, a senior epidemiologist and expert on coal miner health; and Dr Derk Brouwer, a senior scientist in exposure assessment with the Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research TNO in the Netherlands.
