About the Symposium
Environmental health research today is fundamentally shifting our ability to understand human health, disease development, and effective interventions for treatment. The consequences of environmental exposures over time, including nutrition, stress, chemicals, environmental pollutions, and associated biological responses, are complex and require novel approaches, comprehensive exposure analysis, and innovative exposure designs. The exposomic approach provides high-quality, untargeted screenings for environmental health research, making it possible to measure tens of thousands of exposures in a person’s lifetime. Recent advances in environmental chemical surveillance and bioeffect monitoring in human populations provide a major leap in operationalizing the exposomic framework. This symposium will focus on recent developments in data integration, analytical tools, and the potential for usage in precision medicine. It will bring together senior and junior research scientists interested in learning and sharing innovative tools that improve exposure data collection and other new methods in the field.
