The First International Workshop on Effects directed and Mode-of-Action based analysis: A tool for integrated exposure and effecs analysis and risk management

Sunday, 23 September 2012 in Kumamoto, Japan

Since the Industrial Revolution, millions of chemical substances have been produced and hundreds of thousands are currently in daily use. With the increasing release of new chemicals to the environment, there is a need for developing batteries of assays to identify and group pollutants. Groupings would be based on adverse outcome for specific modes of action, and consequently, managing the risk associated with their treatment or presence in the different environmental matrices.

In this workshop, the following topics will be discussed:

  • Progress in mode-of-action based chemical screening methods
  • Advences in analytical identification approaches for non-target chemical screening including extraction/fractionation strategies and compilation of mass spectrum libraries
  • Measures to prioritize emerging contaminants and their toxicity
  • Progress in exposure systems, wich take bioavailability into account in order to connect exposure and effect
  • Management of discharges (wastewater, CAFOs, landfills, etc) to the environment using innovate measures of treatment (ie bioassays, TIE, real time biomonitoring, etc)

Interested? Please come join us in Kumamoto!
