The indoor environment is an important source of exposure to microbial components. We spend approximately 90% of our time indoors and are exposed to a variety of airborne microbial components. The bacteria in the air we breathe are important sources for the lung microbiome, and therefore have the potential to impact respiratory health and disease. While some environments, like farms, may be associated with lower risk of atopy and asthma, as known particularly from children growing up on farms, the mechanisms or sources leading to such ‘protective’ effects are still discussed. The indoor microbiota can be of human or environmental origin but building and household characteristics may also impact the diversity and abundance of the microorganisms found indoors. During this workshop we will discuss the indoor bacteria and other microorganisms, sources and determinants of these and the potential impact on allergies and respiratory health.
