October 10 – October 12, 2017
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine are co-hosting MoBE 2017 (Microbiology of the Built Environment Research and Applications Symposium) at the National Academy of Sciences Building (2101 Connecticut Ave., N.W., Washington, DC). MoBE 2017 is sponsored by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, Zymo Research Corporation, NASA Ames Research Center, the U.S. Green Building Council and BioMed Central’s Microbiome Journal and Standards In Genomic Sciences Journal.
MoBE 2017 will highlight recent MoBE research, to explore emerging issues towards development of solutions-based approaches for bridging the gaps between research and applications.
The goal of the MoBE 2017 Symposium is to present the current state-of-the-science in understanding the formation and function of microbial communities in built environments, their impacts on human health, and how human occupants shape complex indoor microbiomes in relation to human exposure. The MoBE 2017 Symposium will bring together leading researchers and stakeholders to discuss MoBE findings pertinent to human health, safe drinking water, healthy built environments and urban design.
Join us as we explore current findings and discuss the exciting future of the MoBE research field pertinent to microbiology, infrastructure, building science, architectural design, engineering and city planning, policy, standards and technology development.
