ALEXS 2022

Devoted to the exposome concept, this 3-day event will feature a variety of training, networking and learning opportunities. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in emerging research and the latest methodologies in exposomics.

Pioneer researchers in the field of exposomics involved in H2020 EU projects such as HELIX and ATHLETE projects or HBM4EU are scheduled to give plenary lectures. Other lectures will discuss a wide range of important topics including high-resolution mass spectrometry and 'omics' technologies, personal sensors, biomarkers, citizen sciences and statistical methodologies in epidemiology to better define and study the exposome. Workshops will be organised to discuss practical aspects of exposomics and will include hands-on learning opportunities.

A call for abstracts is open for the selection of oral and poster platforms. A “Three-Minute Thesis” challenge will be organised so that PhD students can present their work.

On 7 June, ahead of ALEXS 2022, a scientific tribute will be paid to Bernard Jégou who was at the origin of the creation of IRSET, which he directed until 2019 in parallel with his mission as Research Dean of EHESP School of Public Health. (More information on ALEXS 2022 website.)
