Title of Collaborative Activity:

National Academies Workshop: Emerging Technologies for Measuring Individual Exposomes

Description of Collaborative Activity:

This workshop will take a close look at emerging technologies that can be used to gather individual exposure information based upon external and internal measurements. Presentations and discussions will explore which of the technologies are “ready now” and which are still “emerging” for use in environmental health research. Particular attention will be paid to the relative advantages and disadvantages of external and internal measurements for characterizing individual exposomes and for performing EWAS (Environment-Wide Association Study). Exposomes are the measure of total exposures of an individual in a lifetime and how those exposures relate to heatlh. Recent proof-of-concept studies will be highlighted and bioinformatic tools will be discussed. This synthesis should inform researchers and policy makers about the critical roles that the exposome concept and new technologies can play in understanding the origins of human diseases.
