SETAC/iEOs joint focused meeting 12- 15. September 2016

The meeting was focused on bringing together the best possible scientists and practitioners in the field of Environmental and (Eco)toxicological Omics and Epigenetics to address key questions within the field and to identify areas that require immediate attention, such as the nature of dose response relationships for epigenetic effects and how to incorporate this information in chemical risk assessment. The aim of this meeting was to showcase these new scientific approaches and insights, as well as their practical and regulatory applications. There were 122 participants from 21 nations and 4 continents. The meeting consisted of 48 talks and 34 posters. CERAD was represented with a poster presentation by Dag Anders Brede and a talk by Leif Lindeman, both contributions was well accepted at the conference.
