Exploring Bioscience - digital festival presents Ph.D Malin Alsved who has done research in understanding and preventing spreading of airborne diseases.
Infectious diseases that can be transmitted via air often spread rapidly, sometimes causing large epidemic and pandemic outbreaks. As an increasing number of people live in crowded urban environments, and with frequent and long-distance traveling across the world, infectious diseases can spread even faster. Yet, our knowledge of how much airborne transmission contributes to the spreading of diseases is scarce and frequently debated.
The Covid-19 pandemic has disclosed the knowledge gap in this field.
In her research, Malin Alsved has studied sources of airborne virus and bacteria - how do they become airborne? She has also studied factors that influence the viability of airborne bacteria, and prevention strategies for minimizing the risk for airborne transmission of infectious diseases.
About the speaker
Malin Alsved is Ph.D., Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology at Lunds Universitet, Sweden.
Exploring Bioscience - digital festival
This online event is part of Exploring Bioscience - digital festival. . The 2020 edition of the event focuses on viruses and vaccines. We are asking the question “What do we know today, and how can we understand future epidemics and pandemics better?”.
At the festival, you get an exclusive insight into the latest research when The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA invites you for a behind the scenes look with the experts who are currently working hard on solving the mysteries of the recent pandemic. You will learn about their results and thoughts about the future, and you get the opportunity to ask them the questions you are wondering about.
The festival consists of a number of separate presentations from Monday the 26th of October till Thursday the 29th of October. During these days you can attend online events within the area of viruses.
The festival is open to all and free of charge for all – also for you who are not a member of IDA (create a user profile).
