The NIEHS Division of Extramural Research and Training (DERT) and the NHLBI Division of Cardiovascular Sciences (DCVS) are seeking input for identification of key biological mechanisms/pathways of the combined effects of chemical and non-chemical stressors associated with atherosclerosis. Information provided will be used in planning a workshop which will take place on April 3 & 4, 2018 at the NIEHS Main Campus to help inform the development of intramural and extramural research efforts that address the combined health effects of environmental chemical and non-chemical stressors associated with atherosclerosis, a known multi-factorial disease. Input from all interested parties is welcome including the lay public, environmental health researchers, health professionals, educators, policy makers, industry, and others.
The workshop will utilize the Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) framework to assist in the discussion of key biological mechanisms/pathways associated with this disease. For more information about the AOP framework and its use in the workshop, please view the following webinars: https://clu-in.org/conf/tio/AdvOutPathways1_101117/ and https://clu-in.org/conf/tio/AdvOutPathways2_112917/
