EDCMET Stakeholder Workshop 2024

24 Apr 2024 | Online

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 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 a long time. There is also a lack of a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms by which these chemical compounds disrupt metabolic processes and can cause health impairments.

EDCMET will hold a stakeholder workshop on Wednesday 24 April 2024 from 9-12 CET. In the workshop, the EDCMET speakers provide insight into the scientific achievements and the progress in method development. In addition, stakeholders share their perspectives on the work done in EDCMET. We welcome representatives from research, regulatory authorities, industry, civil society and contract research organisations, policy makers as well as other experts working in the field of EDs.

The event is online, free of charge and open for all, no registration is required.
