Agenda for Chemical Exposure and Environmental Risk Workshop

2018-11-05 12:12:28 From: SERI Hits:

Chemical Exposure and Environmental Risk Workshop


WELCOME

 

On behalf of the organising committee for the Chemical Exposure and Environmental Risk Workshop, a warm welcome to Guangzhou, China. A special welcome to our colleagues from overseas, who have travelled long distances to make this event a success.

 

Chemicals are widely used in agriculture and industry as well as in our daily lives. They can be released to the environment during their production, application and waste disposal processes, causing potential risks to environmental organisms and human health. To address the environmental contamination issues of these chemicals, it is essential to understand the exposure of chemicals in the environment and their ecological and human effects. We need to strengthen our research in environmental exposure assessment, environmental processes and pollution control technologies of chemicals with the aim to reduce their risks posed to the ecosystem and human health.


Our scope of this workshop includes the chemical exposure, ecological and health risk assessment, and environmental processes of chemicals, as well as some emerging issues such as endocrine disruption, antimicrobial resistance and nanomaterials.

 

We invite people in this research field from overseas and within China to discuss the research status and future directions of chemical exposure and environmental risks.

 

We sincerely hope that you will enjoy the stimulating scientific deliberations, social networking and the experience of our Cantonese culture. You are also welcome to visit our campus and SERI laboratories during your stay.
