The exposome refers to the all the environmental exposures that individuals experience over their lives and how those exposures affect health.
Invited established experts in the field will present the latest exposome research at the "Frontiers in Human Exposome Research" symposium.
Areas covered include findings from exosome research using epigenomics, microbiomics, and metabolomics. Moreover, associated legal and ethical issues as well as data management best practice are being discussed. Data analysis solutions from the H2020 project HEAP project in which BBMRI.at member Med Uni Graz is a partner, will be presented.
The symposium is free of charge.
