Meeting Purpose

This workshop is part of the NIEHS Microbiome outreach activities assessing the impact of environmental exposures on human health. The goals of the workshop are as follows:

  1. To understand the relationship between environmental agents, the microbiome, and human health
  2. To build a network of environmental health microbiome researchers
  3. To determine if best practices can be developed by assessing environmental contaminants and the microbiome

This workshop is a 2-day format, with a plenary lecture each day and speakers covering the following 4 topics:

  • Health and Toxicity
  • Environmental Exposures
  • Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion (ADME)
  • Models and Methods

The workshop is free and open to the public. Plenary talks, speaker sessions, and lightning-round (3 min) presentations over lunch will be webcast. Breakout sessions will be held for each of the 4 topic areas and reports from the breakouts will be presented at the end of each day. See the Agenda.
