Exposures to chemicals occur as part of everyday life.  How can we better understand those exposures that are within the normal range of adaptability for a cell, tissue, organ, or whole system such that adverse outcomes do not occur?

The International Council of Chemical Associations' Long-Range Research Initiative (ICCA-LRI) and the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) invite you to attend this year’s workshop on the provocative question of what is normal for humans regarding responses to chemical exposures. Through a combination of plenary and panel discussion sessions, the ICCA-LRI workshop will explore this question.

  • Understanding what is normal - What does human biology tell us?
  • Biomarkers of exposure - How can we better interpret these data?
  • How do genetics, age, and nutrition impact the responses to chemical exposures?
  • Which recent innovations in in vitro and animal model systems can advance our evaluation of what is normal?

A poster session will highlight relevant research.  If you would like to submit an abstract for a poster, please indicate your interest when registering. 


There is no fee to register for this workshop.
