Upcoming NRC Workshop: Metabolomics as Tool for Characterizing Exposome
Contributor: Solmaz Spence, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
Metabolomics—the study of the chemical fingerprints that cellular processes leave behind—is emerging as an important way to characterize exposure. On May 28-29, join the committee on Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions and researchers, professionals, and policy experts for a free workshop that will explore this new approach to advancing understanding of environmental impacts on human health. Metabolomics as a Tool for Characterizing the Exposome will feature presentations and panel discussions on:
•The potential for using metabolomics to characterize exposure;
•Technical issues associated with metabolomics, such as data collection and making data useable with databases;
•The policy implications of a more thorough understanding of background exposure.
Please register to attend via webcast or in person at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, DC. For more information and the workshop agenda, please visit the workshop website: http://nas-sites.org/emergingscience/meetings/metabolomics-and-the-exposome/
