This event is organized by the Institute for Exposomic Research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in partnership with Agilent Technologies and the Society of Toxicology.
The Mount Sinai Institute for Exposomic Research is the nucleus of the Icahn School of Medicine’s work on studying how the environment affects human health. Its mission is to understand how the exposome, or the totality of our environmental exposures, affect health, disease, and development. The Institute aims to translate its findings into new strategies for prevention and treatment. Its approach to exposomics is holistic, encompassing the chemical, nutritional, and social environments and the interrelationships among them.
