Risk Assessment and Communication: Workshop Reports/Summaries
The Division hosts many workshops, symposia, and other meetings that provide information or bring together policy-makers, members of industry, scientists, and the general public to discuss timely issues. Discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.
Toxicogenomic Technologies and Risk Assessment of Environmental Carcinogens: A Workshop Summary (2005)
Toxicogenomics is a discipline that combines expertise in toxicology, genetics, molecular biology, and environmental health to help understand the response of living organisms to stressful environments. The National Research Council convened a workshop to discuss how toxicogenomic data could be applied to improve risk assessments, particularly cancer risk from environmental exposure to chemicals. Risk assessments serve as the basis of man... More >>
Estimating Climate Sensitivity: Report of a Workshop (2003)
Climate sensitivity is a term used to characterize the response of the climate system to an imposed forcing, and is most commonly used to mean the equilibrium global mean surface temperature change that occurs in response to a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. The purpose of this workshop was to explore current capabilities and limitations in quantifying climate sensitivity and consider whether there are alternativ... More >>
