Complex Exposures in Breast Cancer: Unraveling the Role of Environmental Mixtures Virtual Workshop
August 25, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 10:30 pm
This workshop will build on previous NIEHS efforts to understand the health effects of mixtures and bring together experts to discuss the state of the science of environmental chemical mixtures and breast cancer. Experts will describe the current state of breast cancer research, highlighting cell-based models, animal models, 3-D tissue culture models, epidemiological studies, and approaches for prevention and intervention. Participants will seek to determine what research questions and data are needed to improve our understanding of how environmental chemical mixtures influence breast cancer. The workshop will result in a commentary defining the critical research needs and promising approaches for filling data gaps associated with the interaction of environmental chemical mixtures and breast cancer. Along with the commentary, participants will be encouraged develop complementary publications highlighting the topics described during the workshop. Throughout the preplanning and workshop, opportunities for cross-divisional collaboration on the topic of environmental mixtures and breast cancer will be explored.
