Institutions and Individuals Working on Topics Relating to Microbiology of the Built Environment

We are compiling a list of groups and individuals (in addition to those funded by the Sloan Foundation’s Indoor Environment program) from around the world working on topics related to studies of microbiology of the built environment.  Additional suggestions are welcome.

5 thoughts on “Institutions and Individuals Working on Topics Relating to Microbiology of the Built Environment

  1. This would be a very ambitious list of people doing research in indoor microbiology. Additional researchers include Marsha Ward, Steve Vesper Timothy Dean, Doris Betancourt (all from EPA), Karin Foarde, Grace Byfield, and Jean Kim (all from Research Triangle Institute). There are many others that could be named.

  2. Sure – it is ambitious – and I am sure we will not make a complete list – but in part we want to get people out there thinking about the other people in the field and sharing that information. So please, keep sending names and any info you have on institutions.
