ISES Plenary Session Speakers Announced

The International Society of Exposure Science is pleased to host its 2017 Annual Meeting, “Integrating Exposure Science Across Diverse Communities,” at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Research Triangle Park, NC, October 15-19. Building on the theme of diversity, three visionary thinkers from the Research Triangle Area will open the meeting on Sunday, October 15 and speak about their vision for exposure science.

Dr. Gwen Collman, Director of Extramural Research and Training at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), will highlight future directions for research funding in this area. Dr. Tashni-Ann Dubroy, president of Shaw University, a historically black university in Raleigh, NC, will highlight how HBCUs can help bring diverse communities together to tackle important environmental health issues; and Dr. Randy Woodson, Chancellor of North Carolina State University, will provide a land grant university’s perspective on the tools and technology the exposure science field forward.  This will be a great kick off to our meeting and showcases some of the many institutions and organizations in the Research Triangle Park that are involved in the advancement of exposure science.

Additional details regarding the meeting can be found on the meeting web site, www.intlexposurescience.org/ISES2017. The abstract submission deadline is April 28th and registration will open during the week of April 24th. 

About ISES

ISES, with over 500 members, promotes and advances exposure science (methods, measurements, models) as it relates to the complex inter-relationships between human populations, communities, ecosystems, wildlife, and chemical, biological, and physical agents, and non-chemical stressors. ISES members have diverse expertise and training in biological, physical, environmental, and social sciences, as well as various engineering disciplines. According to the National Research Council, “exposure science links human and ecological behavior to environmental processes in such a way that the information generated can be used to mitigate or prevent future adverse exposures.” The Society’s multidisciplinary expertise and international reach make it the premiere professional society for practitioners associated with all aspects of exposure science (research, teaching, policy, communication, and outreach).
