NIEHS Sets September Workshop on Combined Exposures' Health Effects

Its goals are to identify and prioritize current knowledge gaps and to provide recommendations for research on key topics.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health, will host a workshop Sept. 26-27 in Chapel Hill, N.C. to identify and address key issues in mixtures research. The agency's notice said for the purposes of the workshop, the term "mixtures" refers to combined exposures. The workshop is open to the public, with registration closing Sept. 12.

NIEHS says it will use the results from the workshop "to inform the development of an intramural and extramural mixtures research strategy," and the meeting will provide input to the scientific community for advancing mixtures research. A preliminary agenda and other information are posted at this website.

The meeting is organized with plenary talks and breakout groups for in-depth discussion. The objectives are to identify and prioritize the knowledge gaps and challenges in mixtures research specific to each of the following disciplines: toxicology, epidemiology, exposure science, risk assessment, and statistics; obtain advice on integrating multidisciplinary capabilities to address critical topics in mixtures research; provide recommendations for research on key topics; inform the development of a long-term NIEHS mixtures research agenda; and foster collaborations between extramural and NIEHS scientists.
