Abstract:

In September 2009, about 100 people assembled in Washington, D.C., to participate in a symposium on research on the transmission of disease in airports and on aircraft. The symposium brought together individuals from the public sector (federal, state, and local agencies including public airports), private sector (airlines and consultants with expertise in various facets of airport emergency response), and research institutions to learn about current research and to consider ways to conduct and fund future research. The symposium goals were to examine (a) the status of research on or related to the transmission of disease on aircraft and in airports, (b) the potential application of research results to the development of protocols and standards for managing communicable disease incidents in an aviation setting, and (c) areas where additional research is needed. This summary report contains white papers, authored by the invited speakers to each session, that summarize the presentations they gave during the symposium. It includes a summary of the discussion of topics for future research. An overview is provided by the symposium rapporteur, Christine L Gerencher.
