Wolfgang G Kreyling
Helmholtz Zentrum MÃƒÂ¼nchen German Research Center for Environmental Health (GmbH), Germany
Wolfgang G. Kreyling is a biophysicist recently retired from coordinating all aerosol- and engineered nanoparticle related research of the Helmholtz Center Munich (HMGU) and heading the R&D program of the Institute of Lung Biology and Disease on dosimetry of ultrafine aerosol particles and engineered nanoparticles in the respiratory tract and secondary target organs like the cardiovascular and the central nervous system. In recent years I was much engaged with the International Society for Aerosols in Medicine (ISAM) and its President (2003-2005). Recently I served as a member of several expert panels of International (WHO, HEI), European (ESF, EU-DG SANCO, EFSA, ERS, EASAC) and German committees (DFG, BMBF, BMU). I am currently an associated editor of Particle & Fibre Toxicology as well as an editorial board member of several international aerosol and nanotechnology and –toxicology related journals.
Dr. Wolfgang G. Kreyling research interests range from aerosol sciences and nanoparticle technology to biophysics of the lungs reaching from the characterization of ambient aerosols to particle dosimetry and nanoparticle lung interactions on the level of the entire organism, cells like alveolar macrophages, and molecular compounds.
