Welcome to Bioaerosol Laboratory at Peking University (北京大学 生物气溶胶实验室）
Our first bulletin just released! File:PKU-Bioaerosol-Laboratory-Bulletin.pdf
Congrats to Dr. Maosheng Yao for winning the Marian Smoluchowski award in recognition of significant research contribution to aerosol science! Congrats on Prof. Yao for tenure at Peking University and Editorial board member of Atmospheric Environment!
Congrats to Fangxia shen for winning the "Outstanding Young PhD Student Award"!
Our work is featured by ACS Chemical & Engineering News, RSC Chemistry World, ACS Nanotation and Nanowerk (as a Spotlight):
Our bioaerosol laboratory was started in August 2007 in the Department of Environmental Sciences, College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Peking University, in Beijing. Our laboratory applies physical (nanowire, electrostatic, microwave, plasma), chemical (ELISA, LAL,nZVI) and molecular (PCR, qPCR, DGGE, electrophorsis) techniques and tools to address challenges in bioaerosol sampling, detection and inactivation. Specificly, we are focusing on the following areas: (1)bioaerosol sampling, detection, characterization, generation; (2) bioaerosol exposure assessment and control; (3) environmental bioaerosol sensor development and its application in early disease screening; (4) roles of bioaerosols in ecology and climate change. We are working in highly inter-disciplinary and innovation-driven arena, providing broad opportunities for creative and ambitious minds. Over the past four years, our lab, despite of young, made great strides in bioaerosol fields.
We will never cease to work hard to succeed! --Maosheng Yao 01:12, 1 June 2011 (EDT)
