Researchers have made huge advances in understanding environmental exposures and their biological effects in recent years. Despite this, there are still many gaps in knowledge. For example, the incidence of diseases such as cancer is rising, and the role of the exposome in this increase is still not fully understood.
The “Frontiers in Human Exposome Research” symposium, hosted by the Human Exposome Assessment Platform (HEAP) project, BBMRI.at and Med Uni Graz, presents the latest exposome research on epigenomics, microbiomics and metabolomics.
The presentations will include an exploration of the legal and ethical issues specific to exposome research data, as well as data management best practice. There will also be a presentation of the HEAP platform itself, and the data analysis solution that it will offer to future generations of researchers.
