Workshop Proceedings

Although some Division-sponsored activities like workshops do not result in consensus reports, 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.

Informing Environmental Health Decisions Through Data Integration: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Workshop Presentations and Video Integrating large quantities of data from multiple, disparate sources can create new opportunities to understand complex environmental health questions. However, combining new types and larger quantities of data to inform a specific decision presents many new challenges. For example, investigators must develop methods to reliably integrate data from designed experiments with data re-purposed from other uses, suc... More >>

Animal Models for Microbiome Research: Advancing Basic and Translational Science: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

The surface of the human body and its mucous membranes are heavily colonized by microorganisms. Our understanding of the contributions that complex microbial communities make to health and disease is advancing rapidly. Most microbiome research to date has focused on the mouse as a model organism for delineating the mechanisms that shape the assembly and dynamic operations of microbial communities. However, the mouse is not a perfect surrogate fo... More >>

Advancing Disease Modeling in Animal-Based Research in Support of Precision Medicine: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

An ad hoc planning committee will plan and conduct a public workshop to explore the potential of ongoing and future research in animal models with implications for precision medicine. This workshop will bring together experts on the use of state-of-the-art technologies and technological advances to explore: -- How the design, creation, and analysis of current and next-generation animal models can inform the practice of precision medicine; -...

Direct Air Capture and Mineral Carbonation Approaches for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration: Proceedings of a Workshop–in Brief (2018)

Direct air capture (DAC) refers to a range of technologies that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from ambient air. These technologies include chemical scrubbing processes that capture CO2 through absorption or adsorption separation processes. DAC can also refer to processes that involve rapid mineralization of CO2 at the Earth's surface, termed mineral carbonation. This new publication summarizes a webinar and workshop that addressed: -... More >>

The Future of Atmospheric Boundary Layer Observing, Understanding, and Modeling: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

Improved observations of the atmospheric boundary layer (BL) and its interactions with the ocean, land, and ice surfaces have great potential to advance science on a number of fronts, from improving forecasts of severe storms and air quality to constraining estimates of trace gas emissions and transport. Understanding the BL is a crucial component of model advancements, and increased societal demands for extended weather impact forecasts (fro... More >>
