Inhal Toxicol 2006 Sep; 18(10):841-843
The October 2005 Frontiers in Aerosol Dosimetry Research Conference brought together 95 experts representing 53 organizations from 12 different countries to discuss the state of the art in estimating internal doses from inhaled aerosol particles and gases. About one-third of the conference participants were from universities, one-third from commercial firms, and one- third from government/national laboratories, consulting firms, and other entities. At the end of the 2-day meeting, which was held at the Beckman Center of the National Academies on the University of California, Irvine, campus, attendees were invited to submit written suggestions for high-priority research. More than 50 suggested projects were submitted and the suggestions have been grouped into 32 specific topics covering four broad categories. An edited summary of the suggestions is provided here, starting with those topics most often noted. These suggestions are simply a snapshot of the priorities of individual scientists, and do not carry the approval of any regulatory or funding agency.
