It is an honor and a great pleasure to welcome you to the Sixteenth International Symposium on Recent Advances in Environmental Health Research being held at the Westin Jackson, in Jackson, Mississippi, USA, from March 29 to April 1, 2020. You are invited to submit your abstracts.
This event is a contribution to global research and education in the exciting field of Environmental Science, Biomedical Science, Public Health. Its over-arcing objective is to promote interdisciplinary discussions and international scientific collaborations, as well as to increase awareness of global environmental and public health issues facing our state, nation, and the international community.
This year, we are expecting colleagues from several countries, representing all five continents. The scientific program is composed of seven plenary sessions where oral/platform presentations will be given by invited speakers. In addition, there will be two poster sessions - one for faculty and professional scientists, and one for students. Both plenary lectures and poster presentations will deal with many crucial issues, such as environmental toxicology and health risk assessment; nanoscience, nanotechnology and nanotoxicology; emerging issues in computational biology and environmental modeling; environmental geology and human health; new frontiers in environmental health research; natural resources damage assessment and management; and health disparities and environmental security.
As in previous years, we are very excited about this international symposium, and believe that it will continue to provide a strong forum to communicate and share knowledge of the latest advances in scientific research and new developments on timely issues related to environmental quality and human health. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all our colleagues and staff who are working very hard to ensure that this upcoming symposium is successful. We invite all of you to submit abstracts for presentation, and to take advantage of this unique opportunity to share your scientific expertise. Together, we can make this symposium a marvelous scientific and social event.
We look forward to the opportunity to personally meet each of you in Jackson!!!
