On August 25, 2015 the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is hosting a symposium on the Halifax Project. In the scope of the Halifax Project, 174 scientists from 26 countries assessed the potential role of low-dose chemical mixtures in the development of cancer (FPF reported). Leroy Lowe of Getting to Know Cancer, the non-profit organization that sponsored the Halifax Project, will provide an overview of the project, including the scientific approach and the outcome. William Goodson, main author of the publication by the Halifax Project published in the peer-reviewed journal Carcinogenesis – will lead a discussion on the implications of the project’s findings and the challenges ahead. The symposium will be held from 9.30am to 3.30pm EDT at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, U.S. – the morning session will be broadcast live via webcast. Registration is now open and space is limited. The symposium agenda can be found on the event website.
