Indoor Air 2011 coming up in Austin, TX – still time to sign up #microbes …

Just got sent a link to this interview of Rich Corsi on a Fox TV station about the Upcoming Indoor Air 2011 meeting: UT: Indoor Air Conference.

There is still time to sign up for the meeting.  I note – there will be sessions Wednesday and Thursday focusing on microbiology of the built environment.  We (i.e., microBEnet) helped plan/organize the sessions on Thursday.  Here is more detail on the Wednesday and Thursday sessions:
