    The scope of breath research is quite broad and we are happy to consider any topics that are in some way related back to making breath measurements. In the past, we have had successful papers submitted on the following topics:

  • TOPICS WITH HIGH INTEREST: In vitro gas phase analysis (bacterial cells, infections, pathogens); Hypoxia and pulmonary edema biomarkers; Electronic nose; Nitric oxide; EBC (ultrafine particles, pH, asthma)
  • Central laboratory instrumentation: state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation for high-resolution discovery and targeted breath research
  • Engineering solutions: developing new breath sampling technologies for VOCs, condensate and aerosols
  • Human and animal in vivo studies: decoding the “breath exposome”, implementing exposure and intervention studies, performing cross-sectional and case-control research
  • Cellular and molecular level in vitro studies: developing breath sampling and analytical approaches to link broad in vivo observations with focused in vitro level experiments; focusing on the human microbiome, exhaled aerosols, messenger proteins, and infectious diseases
  • Clinical, pharmacological and forensic applications: describe new breath-based clinical and medical diagnostics, evaluate metabolic pathways of drugs and chemicals in commerce, develop point of care devices, test for alcohol and illicit drugs
  • Mathematical, statistical and graphical data interpretation: developing methods for interpreting and explaining complex data using graphics visualization, statistics, metabolism, and pattern recognition
  • Standardized practices for breath sampling and analysis: cross-validation and benchmarking to establish standardized routines for breath biomarker analysis
  • To be sure, this is not an exclusive list; we are always interested in novel approaches for gas-phase analytics, proteins analysis, immunochemistry, cellular respiration, infections, threat assessment, toxicology, etc. Please be creative!

Abstract Submission CLOSED

All abstracts must be submitted online (submission currently closed). You will receive an e-mail confirming your successful upload. Please download our MS Word template for layout reasons (see above). Registration prior to abstract submission is not mandatory.
