Hello Plexors,

Kumiko Lippold, here again.

In case you missed it, I’m the Program Manager of the BARDA and NIOSH Mask Innovation Challenge and the host of the BARDA Mask Innovation Challenge: Phase 2 Incubator.
We enjoyed our first AMA so much that we want to invite you to our second AMA today, July 15, from 2 – 4PM ET (details below). 
Today's AMA will do a deep-dive in novel testing methodologies and data points for masks, respirators, and other unique designs such as air curtains.

From this discussion, we hope to walk away with ideas of testing methods for evaluating unique respiratory protective devices, an understanding of what data we need for evaluation, and a few other fun questions.

Together, we want your help to imagine the future of masks that can be used to protect the general public from respiratory pathogens like COVID or the flu. 

As a spoiler – we may even have a few scientists joining in the discussion from BARDA, NIOSH, and NIST.
I hope to see you there!
