The 7th Conference on Metal Toxicity and Carcinogenesis is an interdisciplinary international workshop that brings together a community of scientists in the area of metal toxicity and carcinogenicity.  The conference will focus on: m
echanisms of metal-induced toxicity, strategies for intervention and prevention, and possible translation from basic studies into clinical or public policy.  It is the objective of the conference to coordinate, exchange, and disseminate information and to explore metal-induced toxicity and carcinogenicity

BENEFITS TO PARTICIPANTS

Participants will have numerous opportunities for stimulating interactions of scientists and collaborations that help move the field forward. Curriculum will cover concepts, approaches, methodologies, instrumentation, as well as interventions novel to metal toxicity and carcinogenicity and will also address refinement, improvement, or new application of theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions. This is an exceptional opportunity for young investigators to learn directly from the experts in the field, and to present their exciting findings to the most appropriate audience.
