The Emerging Science standing committee holds three to four meetings per year on the use of new discoveries, tools, and approaches for guiding environmental health decisions. These meetings will provide a public venue for communication among government, industry, environmental groups, and the academic community.
The next Emerging Science meetings for 2013 are scheduled for: June 6-7, 2013 and September 19-20, 2013
Check back for updates.
Additional information about these meetings will be posted as it becomes available. To be notified of updates, please subscribe to our electronic mailing list.
