Air Date: 5-31-24 |Episode 731|

This week we welcomed back Dr. David Miller to discuss his chapters in the recent 2nd edition of the Bioaerosols Assessment and Control Book. This long awaited update is loaded with current, updated information.

Prof. J. David Miller has focused his research on mycotoxins and damp buildings and health for the last 40 years first at Agriculture Canada and then at Carleton University in Ottawa.

Dr. Miller has published over 370 papers on fungi and fungal toxins and has co-written 10 books on the public health aspects of exposures to fungi and fungal toxins, and has several patents. Miller has served on many national and international committees on the regulation of mycotoxins as well as on mold and dampness in the built environment. This includes on the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology committee that produced practice parameters for environmental allergens. He was chief editor of the American Industrial Hygiene Association “Green Book” (2008, 2020) and “Field Guide” (1996, 2005) that lay out guidelines for addressing mold and dampness in public buildings. He drafted several chapters of the recent ACGIH Bioaerosols guidelines, second edition.

In 2013, Miller was elected as a Fellow of the American Industrial Hygiene Association. In 2021, he received the inaugural Philip R. Morey award from the ACGIH for contributions to bioaerosol guidance.
