The Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society is the primary professional society for scientists involved in research into environmental causes and consequences of damage to the genome and epigenome. Our mission is to transmit emerging knowledge and support national and international efforts to ensure a healthy, sustainable environment for future generations. The Society’s Annual Meeting is unique in bringing together scientists who carry out basic research with those involved in risk estimation and regulatory concerns related to the consequences of exposure to environmental, industrial, and pharmaceutical agents. The result is a dynamic meeting that is sufficiently large to cover a broad range of contemporary topics, yet focused to facilitate interactions between students and renowned scientists in academia, government, and industry.
The theme of the 44th Annual EMGS Meeting is “Embracing the Science of the Future through Cross-Disciplinary Research”. The goals of this meeting are:
- To build on our past contributions to the field of environmental and molecular mutagenesis and DNA repair and more fully understand the role of epigenetics in these basic mechanisms.
- To integrate applied genetic toxicology with basic research in DNA damage and repair, toxicogenomics, and epigenetics.
- To determine how interdisciplinary information can be best used to direct translational human epidemiological studies.
- To have these data serve as a foundation for human risk assessment for disease and disease prevention.
- To aid in the support of knowledge-based regulation to protect public health and the environment.
The meeting will include three “all hands” sessions which are designed to build up the concept of interdisciplinary research; seeking integration of information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, and/or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge to advance fundamental understanding or to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research practice.
EMGS invites you to join us in Monterey for this exciting and rewarding scientific meeting.
