The 8th International Workshop on Biomonitoring of Atmospheric Pollution (BIOMAP 8) will be held in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna, Russian Federation, from July 2d to 7th 2018.
There is a growing need for air and biological monitoring within the preventive context of identifying health hazards at the environment and of keeping them under control. Biomonitoring is a sensitive, selective and user-friendly method for air quality management. The objective of BIOMAP 8 is to promote knowledge on methods and strategies for workplace, indoor and ambient air monitoring. In addition to the specific issues related to biomonitoring as a technique, this workshop specifically addresses the potential use of biomonitoring data in assessing the human exposure to toxic substances.
BIOMAP 8 is expected to provide an opportunity for an interchange of ideas among researchers, policy markers and practitioners in environmental sciences.
