Environmental Mixtures Workshop

Organization: Columbia University
Event Date or Start Date: 8/23/2018
End Date: 8/24/2018
Event Type: Other Scientific Events
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: NY
Additional Meeting Information:

Overview: Traditionally, environmental health studies have focused on assessing risks related to a single pollutant at a time. This, however, does not reflect reality, since we are constantly exposed to multiple pollutants at once. Recently, there has been an increased interest in methods that allow researchers to assess exposures to many pollutants at a time. These methods are able to accommodate the high dimension of the exposure matrix, as well as the usually high correlation across exposures of interest.

This two-day intensive workshop will provide a rigorous introduction to multiple different techniques to analyze exposure to mixtures in environmental health. Led by a team of world experts in environmental health, epidemiology and statistics, many of whom have developed their own methods to analyze exposure to mixtures, the workshop will integrate seminar lectures with hands-on computer lab sessions to put concepts into practice. Emphasis will be given to supervised and unsupervised methods. Since the choice of method depends on the research question at hand, the workshop will conclude with a panel discussion on when each method presented is appropriate for use and for which research questions.

Investigators at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate. There is a limited capacity for the Workshop.

Instructors:
- Brent Coull, Harvard School of Public Health
- Chris Gennings, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
- Jeff Goldsmith, Mailman School of Public Health

A disease is regarded as an epidemic when the incidence rate reaches above the anticipated under a given area. For example, the Annual influenza epidemics follow a winter seasonal pattern in the United States with typical activity peaking during late December to early February.
An epidemic occurrence of disease in a series of an animal population, often with the consequence that it may continue to humans, are named as Epizootic diseases. Rift Valley fever (RVF) which occurs in domesticated animals (such as cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats, and camels).
An endemic disease regarded as a persistent condition ensconces and sustain within a population group or continent without any exteriors' impact. In many malaria-endemic countries, malaria transmission does not occur in all parts of the country.
Pandemic diseases are defined by World Health Organization (WHO) as "A disease epidemic takes place when there are greater instances of that disease than conforming to a standard.”

Additional Meeting Information: Abstract: According to longitudinal survey from the US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average “job” for individuals born between 1957 and 1964 average lasts three to five years, and a person may hold more than 10 “jobs” over the course of their career.1 While Toxicology is a niche field, changes in jobs or career direction may occur several times even for our specialized profession. Reasons for job changes range from personal growth, job changes out of the control of the Toxicologist (e.g. layoff) major life changing events, or even “retirement” from one field. In 2015, the Society of Toxicology sponsored Education-Career Development Sessions that included the topics of: Adaptive Leadership: Anticipating, Initiating, and Responding to Change, as well as “Challenges in the Life Cycle of the Toxicologist” This webinar extends those conversations by exploring the following topics: dealing with life changes and the experience of a layoff, a mid-career transition from consulting back into academia, and a later career transition from academia into consulting. These topics will address some of the lessons learned from the 2015 workshops.

Additional Meeting Information: Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) is the result of a fatty liver that starts to undergo fibrosis whose scarring can eventually lead to a liver that is non-functional. The increasing global incidence of NASH may be linked to the concomitant rise in diabetes, obesity and other metabolic disorders all over the world. No pharmaceutical treatment yet exists for NASH, but it is an area of active research and industry focus, with several treatments in late-stage clinical trials. However, many translational challenges remain, such as non-invasive ways to measure disease progression and response to treatment and best ways to model the disease outside of the patient. Join fellow drug discovery researchers working in the area of liver disease and/or fibrosis to stay abreast of clinical and preclinical advances in the field and share insights on translational tools and approaches for spurring drug development progress. This conference is part of the World Preclinical Congress Europe.
