The NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (EHSCC) main page is featuring our Deputy Director, Dana Dolinoy, Ph.D. The featured story focuses on the 2018 Achievement Award from the Society of Toxicology (SOT), which she received for her work in understanding how nutritional and environmental factors influence epigenetic gene regulation, and how early life exposures can lead to disease later in life.
The Big Data Summer Institute's concluding symposium and workshop serves as a CAPSTONE event for the six-week-long program. The symposium is open to the public. The registration fee is $25 for students and $50 for non-students. Breakfast and lunch are provided. Those interested in applying for graduate school are encouraged to attend the professional development workshop on July 27.

The New York City Exposome Symposium, hosted by the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, is now open for registration. Dr. Bhramar Mukherjee will be speaking "Approaches to EWAS Analysis" at this meeting.
The New York City Exposome Symposium, will be hosted by the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. This symposium is designed to be an introduction to exposomics, the study of how the complex mix of nutritional, chemical, and social environments shape human health throughout the lifespan. Learn about the use of old and new methods in the field and an illustration of the challenges. This symposium will be of interest both to researchers new to the field and to those who are already practicing exposomics..

On June 8th our Integrated Health Sciences Core (IHSC) led by Marie O'Neill and Veronica Berrocal presented a webinar to all NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (EHSCC), along with the New York University School of Medicine, University of Kentucky, University of Rochester, University of Southern California, and University of Chicago. One focus of the IHSC's presentation was our May webinar on the unfolding PFAS groundwater contamination events in southwest Michigan. The goal of this webinar was to prepare for the IHSC focused EHSCC meeting from July 16-19th. Our IHSC presentation encouraged dialogue across the core centers about Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS).
