Mixtures and Cumulative Risk Assessment: New Approaches Using the Latest Science and Thinking about Pathways
July 27-28, 2011
20 F Street, NW
Conference Center
Washington, DC 20001

The Standing Committee on the Use of Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions at the National Academies will be holding a workshop on mixtures and cumulative risk assessment approaches on July 27-28, 2011. The focus will be on how new tools from biotechnology, computation and exposure science can greatly accelerate the pace with which we can conclude whether environmental agents are likely to interact in some way, such as sharing a common mechanistic pathway, and are present together in the environment, such that they should be evaluated together in risk assessment. The workshop will include discussions on research needs and suggest approaches to incorporating novel data streams in risk assessment.
