ISES is coming to the Southwest!
We are returning to the place of our first meeting for the 25th anniversary of International Society for Exposure Science. The annual ISES meeting will be in southwest Nevada, 18-22 October 2015, at the M Resort in Henderson. The theme of the meeting is Exposures in an Evolving Environment.
Exposure science cuts across many disciplines, including analytical chemistry, epidemiology, toxicology, industrial hygiene, public health, risk assessment, ecological health, and occupational health. Exposure science addresses issues related to methods for measuring and estimating exposures, and the use of these measures in risk assessment and environmental health policy. Exposure science considers not only traditional environmental chemical exposures but also exposures to radionuclides and pathogens, food additives and pharmaceuticals, and not only traditional measures in environmental media but also biomonitoring.
At the 2015 meeting, we are seeking to foster multidisciplinary discussion in order to find multidisciplinary solutions to complex public health problems. There will be opportunities to present your ideas through oral and poster presentations, symposia, and exhibits as well as during the many informal activities being planned, including receptions, dinners, and field trips.
There will also be opportunities for networking and mentoring, and volunteer options for students. The ISES meeting attracts scientists of international acclaim from academia, government and the private sector. We are always excited to highlight the work of students and new researchers. We will be providing networking opportunities specifically designed for women, students and new researchers.
We are especially interested in highlighting issues that affect the Southwest, including water-related issues, chemical and pathogen exposures of concern in the region, and other region-specific topics.
Please join us this fall to meet your fellow scientists. If you would like to discuss topics or have questions, please contact the meeting co-chairs: Dr. Ben Blount (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Judy LaKind (email@example.com).
