Epidemiology studies are a valuable tool for assessing the effects of chemical exposure in humans. While they cannot directly prove a cause-and-effect relationship, they can demonstrate an association between environmental exposure to chemical(s) and observed health effects in the exposed groups. The strength of the association demonstrated depends on how accurately exposure of the groups can be assessed. The purpose of the symposium is to bring together epidemiologists, chemists, and mathematical modelers so that they can gain insight into each others needs and capabilities, thus resulting in research projects that will allow the exposure of subjects in epidemiologic studies to be more accurately assessed.
