NIEHS Exposure Science and the Exposome Webinar Series
HEALS – Health and Environment-wide Associations via Large Population Surveys

July 14, 2014, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Register now: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/887899650
Webinar description:
Denis Sarigiannis, PhD, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
Isabella Annesi-Maesano, PhD, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, France
The general objective of HEALS is the refinement of an integrated methodology and the application of the corresponding analytical and computational tools for performing environment-wide association studies in support of EU-wide environment and health assessments. This webinar will outline the HEALS methodology and study design, discuss the hurdles that need to be overcome in succeeding to render the exposome concept operational and it will give first results based on preliminary analyses of existing data and biosamples.



Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions Workshop
Biological Platforms: The Potential of the Tissue Chip for Environmental Health Studies

National Academy of Sciences, 2100 C St. NW; Washington, DC; and webcast
July 21-22, 2014
Register now to join us July 21-22 at the next Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions workshop, focusing on Biological Platforms: The Potential of the Tissue Chip for Environmental Health Studies. Human tissue chips are touted as offering a more human-representative alternative to animal models, while overcoming limitations associated with in vitro systems— but concerns remain about the limitations of these emerging model systems. This meeting will examine the state of development and use of biological platforms, and explore the promises and limitations of their use in environmental health research and regulatory contexts. Register here to attend in person or via webcast.

 

NIEHS Exposure Science and the Exposome Webinar Series
HELIX – first steps to put the exposome into practice

July 23, 2014, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Register now: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/573182978
Webinar description:
Martine Vrijheid, PhD,CREAL- Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology, Spain
The Human Early Life Exposome (HELIX) project is a new collaborative research project, funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Program and led by Dr. Martine Vrijheid at the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) in Barcelona. The project aims to implement novel exposure assessment and biomarker methods to characterize early-life exposure to a wide range of environmental hazards and associate these with omics biomarkers and child health outcomes. HELIX proposes a more integrated, holistic, way of studying the environment during critical developmental time periods. As such it is one of the first attempts to describe the early-life exposome of European populations. In this presentation, Dr. Martine Vrijheid will focus on the project’s background, concept and study design.
