By Researching PM2.5 Developed Frontier of Aerosols Characterization and Therapies by NSYSU

Air pollution is a major issue facing the world. Although PM2.5 aerosol suspended particles caused by human activities are harmful to the environment and the human body, aerosol can also be used as a novel drug delivery method in the field of biomedicine. Aerosol Science Research Center of National Sun Yat-sen University held the first International Symposium on Aerogel Properties and Biomedical Laws today (29) to discuss the latest analysis techniques for the physical and chemical properties of aerosols and the development of aerosol drugs. At the same time, ten outstanding aerosol physical chemists, aerosol biomedical and pharmaceutical experts and scholars from North America, Europe, Asia and Israel are invited to address the environmental protection regulations and medical policies of public health under the serious threat of air pollution and PM2.5. probably how to respond.

Associate Professor Chia C. Wang, the Director of the Aerosol Science Research Center at National Sun Yat-sen University,, points out that "aerosol" is a general term for very fine particles suspended in the air. In recent years, air pollution and suspended fine suspended particles, such as PM2.5 (aerosol with an aerodynamic diameter of less than 2.5 microns) produced by human activities, have had a huge impact on the atmosphere, the earth's environment, ecology, and public health. According to statistics, the number of people who die prematurely due to air pollution exposure is as high as 6 to 7 million person-times worldwide each year. Currently known diseases related to air pollution and PM2.5 exposure cover the respiratory tract and lungs, including chronic chronic diseases with a high fatality rate. Pulmonary obstruction (COPD), cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, cancer, liver and kidney disease, eye and skin allergies and other diseases. The investigation report published by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) also pointed out that air pollution is a deadly killer that threatens children's health in this century. PM2.5 exposure may cause miscarriage and premature delivery of pregnant women, hinder the brain development of newborns, and affect the intellectual development of young children. In view of this, it is urgent to gather scientists and researchers from all over the world to brainstorm and discuss countermeasures.

The world's first International Symposium on Aerosol Properties and Biomedical Law uses the earth as the main vision of the propaganda. According to Associate Professor Chia C. Wang ,this is to highlight that although aerogel fine suspended particles are subtle and not easy to detect, their scope of influence covers every level of the earth and all life. On the other hand, from the perspective of the entire universe, the earth is also a tiny aerosol particle suspended in the universe, and all of us are integrated and closely connected on this suspended particle of "earth".

The seminar included about 150 people from industry, government, university, and research. Keynote speakers include Chantal Darquenne and Jonathan Slade of the University of California, San Diego, Chunhuei Chi of Oregon State University, Ralf Zimmermann of Rostock University, Germany, Igor Gonda, founder and CEO of San Francisco Aerosol Pharmaceuticals, and Igor Gonda of the United States. Judith Chow, an atmospheric science expert at the Desert Research Institute; and aerogel biomedicine at the Israel Institute of Technology and Putra University in Malaysia.
