ii. Programme overview

The EEMGS Annual Meeting is focused on bringing together basic, clinical, and regulatory scientists to bridge the translation research aimed at understanding and mitigating environmental threats to the genome and to the epigenome.

Our dynamic and interactive meetings are designed to promote the Society’s mission to foster scientific research, education, and collaboration with a focus on issues pertinent to genomic stability. Emphasis areas include DNA damage, DNA repair, mutagenesis, heritable effects, and epigenetic alterations in genome function. Additionally, the EEMGS aims to promote the application and communication of knowledge relevant to genetic toxicology testing, risk assessment, and regulatory policy-making to protect human health and the environment.

The EEMGS Annual Meeting has been creating opportunities for new investigators to join a welcoming community of scientists working in research institutions, regulatory agencies, and industry, all with a shared commitment toward public health. EEMGS a major focus on supporting the next generation of scientists through both formal and informal activities throughout the meeting.

Selected abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations. Poster sessions will be held and we kindly invite all participants to submit their work for any kind of presentation.
