The EMGS Annual Meeting uniquely brings together leading scientists from academia, industry, and government to discuss cutting-edge research aimed at understanding and mitigating environmental threats to the genome and to the epigenome.

By forging a bridge to bring scientists studying exposures, mechanisms, and regulatory sciences, the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS) will provide a venue for stimulating cross-disciplinary research and discovery. Aspects like how environmental agents impact genomic, proteomic and metabolic signatures, and how this knowledge base can be used to develop informed biomarkers and improved regulatory policies that address human health concerns related to environmental exposures will be covered.
