About the Webinar:

Aerosol in the workplace has been and continues to be a significant occupational health concern. The inhalation and deposition of aerosol in a worker's respiratory system can lead to various adverse health effects. This presentation will provide basic information on particle lung deposition, and explore the past, present, and future of aerosol respiratory deposition experiments using human airway replicas.


At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:


  • Describe the structure of the human respiratory tract;
  • Identify dominant aerosol respiratory deposition mechanisms for different work-related aerosol;
  • Review the traditional method to conduct aerosol respiratory deposition experiments;
  • Discuss the present and future of aerosol respiratory deposition experiments.


Dr. Wei-Chung Su is an Assistant Professor in the Environmental and Occupational Health Science program in the Department of Epidemiology, Human Genetics and Environmental Sciences at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Public Health. He is also a faculty member in the Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH).

Dr. Su teaches several Industrial Hygiene core courses at UTHealth, and his research interests are centered on aerosol-related environmental and occupational health issues with a focus on aerosol respiratory deposition. Dr. Su is a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and a past chair of the Aerosol Technology Committee in the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA). Dr. Su received his Ph.D. degree from the School of Public Health, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Your Best Response to a Changing World!

The Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH) supports research, education and outreach in occupational and environmental health. The SWCOEH is housed within the Department of Epidemiology, Human Genetics and Environmental Sciences of the UTHealth School of Public Health.

The SWCOEH was established in 1977 as a NIOSH-funded Education and Research Center (ERC), now one of 18 ERCs in the nation. In 1985, the SWCOEH became a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Occupational Health. As of 2019, the SWCOEH has been officially approved as an affiliate of the NIOSH Total Worker Health program, strengthening a partnership spanning more than 40 years.

The mission of the SWCOEH Continuing Education (CE) Program is to serve as a training resource for professionals and decision-makers in the occupational and environmental health fields by delivering specialized courses in response to current training needs. Our ultimate goal is to improve occupational and environmental health. Our core subject areas are occupational medicine, industrial hygiene, occupational safety, hazardous substances and materials and and worker well-being. Contact us to discuss your training needs!
