The NIHR Aerosol Generating Procedures Group has identified a new set of research priorities for Aerosol Generating Procedures in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, following a review of the existing evidence by experts from science, engineering, infection prevention sectors and the healthcare system.

Five new research priorities have been identified through the NIHR expert review process, with the purpose of providing evidence to understand and assess aerosol generation and the infective risk associated with individual AGPs as well as broader questions about airborne transmission of COVID-19 in healthcare settings.
