A message from the International Society for Aerosols in Medicine.

April, 2018: New Initiatives

President Rajiv Dhand and the ISAM board have begun several new initiatives since the successful Santa Fe Congress to make the society more responsive to its members. The most visible in a new, revamped website that gives access to the Journal of Aerosol Medicine and Pulmonary Drug Delivery and Aerosols in Medicine Textbook. The new version is regularly updated and has a streamlined transaction portal. Other new education initiatives include a webinar series and a symposium at the next ATS.

ISAM Webinar

The second webinar in the new series will be presented by Jim Fink on "Medical Aerosols in the ICU: My Experiences in Aerosol Research." The first in the series by Chantal Darquenne on "Basics of Aerosol Transport and Deposition in the Lung"was a great success with over 70 participants.

ATS-Related Events

ISAM will be well represented at the ATS Congress. Plan on attending the pre-conference ISAM symposium "Updates and Controversies Related to Inhaled Aerosols" May 18th to take place on the campus of the University of California, San Diego. Enjoy great sessions with a great view of the Pacific Ocean. The organizing committee is also currently looking for sponsors interested in participating in a panel discussion on digital health and in sharing their technologies with the attendees. Interested companies are invited to contact Chantal Darquenne, chair of the organizing committee.

An ISAM poster session will be held May 19th.

Call for Nominations 2018 Mercer Award

The 2018 Thomas T. Mercer Award will be presented at the American Association of Aerosol Researchers conference in St. Louis, MO. The Thomas T. Mercer Award is jointly sponsored by ISAM and AAAR and is awarded yearly. The recipient is recognized for their achievement of excellence in the field of medicinal aerosols and inhalable materials. Please consider nominations for this award and submit them to Philip Kuehl.

ISAM and Young Investigators

ISAM is very interested in helping young investigators (students and recent graduates) enter the field of aerosol medicine. A Networking Group has been initiated specifically on this subject. Furthermore, a co-chair of the networking group has been invited as a non-voting member of the board, Jessica Oaks, Assistant Professor in the Bioengineering Department at Northeastern University, Boston. Please contact Jessica for questions and opportunities within ISAM ESI.
