Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions workshop: Interindividual Variability: New Ways to Study and Implications for Decision-Making

Contributor: Solmaz Spence, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

Within any population, factors such as heritable characteristics, stress, body weight, and genetics can influence the type and degree of response that people may have to environmental stressors. Accounting for this interindividual variability is a challenge for decision makers tasked with setting chemical safety regulations. This free workshop will feature presentations from a diverse group of the leading researchers and practitioners, along with panel discussions and Q&A sessions on topics such as:

  • in-vitro toxicology methods using highly diverse cell lines;
  • in-vivo methods using highly diverse animal populations;
  • epidemiologic analytical approaches which explore mediators within the causal pathway.

In-person and webcast registration is required. For more information and to register, please visit:
