EURION Cluster project EDCMET holding stakeholder workshop in April 2024

19 Mar 2024

Fellow EURION Cluster project EDCMET will hold an online stakeholder workshop on Wednesday 24 April 2024 from 9-12 CET.

Endocrine disruptors (EDs) are defined as exogenous chemicals that alter functions of the endocrine system, thereby causing adverse health effects in an organism or its progeny. These chemical substances are also suspected of being related to the development of metabolic diseases such as obesity, fatty liver, high blood cholesterol and diabetes. However, validated methods to evaluate the metabolic effects of endocrine disruptors have been lacking for some time. There is also a lack of a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms by which these chemical substances disrupt metabolic processes and can cause health impairments.

During the workshop, EDCMET will provide insight into the scientific achievements and the progress made in method development. In addition, stakeholders will have the opportunity to share their perspectives on the work done in EDCMET. Representatives from research, regulatory authorities, industry, civil society and contract research organisations, policy makers as well as other experts working in the field of Endocrine Disruptors are all welcome, the workshop is free of charge and registration is not required.
