Director's Conference Support: 2016 CEECHE

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

The Central and Eastern European Conference on Health and the Environment (CEECHE) is a cooperative initiative of US and European institutions and a platform to facilitate scientific exchange and to better define the complex but common links between health and environment world-wide and especially within Central and Eastern Europe. The inaugural CEECHE conference was held in 2004 in Prague, Czech Republic; subsequent events took place in Bratislava, Slovakia (2006), and Cluj-Napoca, Romania (2008 and 2014). Past conferences have featured novel findings on common complex problems associated with toxicant exposure and compromised health and technological innovations with potential both to generate new understandings of diverse toxic environments and of environmentally induced disease. CEECHE 2016 will focus on emerging prevention paradigms and has as its theme Prevention of Environmental Exposures and Disease Risks with a focus specifically on the means to prevent exposure-related impacts of environmental toxicants and to modulate toxicant-induced disease risks through therapeutic interventions and development of novel remediation platforms. The conference goal is to engage researchers from around the world, and especially early-career scientists and graduate/ postdoctoral trainees from the US and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), in dialogue to advance the science of environmental remediation and of contaminant toxicity modulation through prevention/ therapeutic intervention and public health initiatives.
