Exposomics and Precision Medicine: Everything that Rises Must Converge

Registration is required to attend. Exposomics is the study of all the health relevant environmental exposures across a lifetime, and is the great unmet challenge in medical science. Exposomics is unique in that it includes external and internal measures of exposure, as well as being time varying. There have been exponential advances in measuring the exposome in the last decade. In this lecture the convergence of exposomics and precision medicine will be presented and a proposal advanced to incorporate environmental measures into precision medicine initiatives.
