OEHHA Distinguished Lecture Series: Advances in Toxicology and Risk Assessment

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is hosting a Distinguished Lecture Series on Advances in Toxicology and Risk Assessment.  These lectures are intended to promote a better understanding of key emerging scientific issues with the aim of improving risk assessment.  Pre-eminent researchers in toxicology have been invited to present their findings and discuss their application to risk assessment. All the lectures will be held in Sacramento and simultaneously webcast on the website of the California Environmental Protection Agency (http://www.calepa.ca.gov/Broadcast/).  The lectures will begin at 10am and are open to the public at no cost.  No registration is required.  

The inaugural series in 2008 will focus on Epigenetics and Environmental Diseases.  The invited speakers will present on epigenetic mechanisms that may be involved in common human diseases such as neurodevelopmental disorders, breast cancer, and prostate illness.  The first six lectures in the series are listed below.
