Environmental toxicology experts to convene at Penn symposium

WHAT: Members of the media are invited to attend The Environment, Health and Disease, a symposium hosted by the new Center for Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET) at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. The Center is the first of its kind in Pennsylvania and will bring together world-renowned experts from the field of environmental toxicology. Topics to be addressed include lung and airway disease, endocrine and reproduction disruption, oxidative stress injury, genes and the environment, and biomarkers. The symposium will also focus on: collaborative research; translational research; grants and initiatives; training health care professionals; and community-based advocacy.

Several Penn scientists will be presenting new and updated research. This updated information will include recent discoveries in the area of asthma treatment, biomarkers for mesiothelioma (the "silent killer"), melanoma susceptibility genes, and gene-environment interactions and preterm birth. Scientists will discuss new initiatives to identify lung cancer susceptibility genes and the link between ozone and asthma. The symposium will also provide a forum in which scientists and stakeholders can discuss how to tackle environmental health issues that pervade our urban region.

The Center represents a partnership between research scientists and communities in southeastern Pennsylvania. Its mission is to understand the mechanism by which environmental exposures lead to disease. Understanding these processes can lead to early diagnosis, intervention, and prevention strategies. The goal of the center will be to improve environmental health and medicine in the region.
