The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host a two-day workshop from March 7 to March 8, 2019, entitled, “The Promise of Single Cell and Single Molecule Analysis Tools to Advance Environmental Health Research.” This event is an Emerging Science for Health Decisions workshop and will take place at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, DC. Registration is free, and interested parties can participate either in person or via webcast.

The workshop will explore advances in single cell and single molecule analysis tools that could be employed to improve understanding of the impact on human health of environmental exposures. Among other discussion points, speakers will address how these tools are and could be incorporated into cell-based and animal studies. Four sessions over two days will cover the following topics:

  • “Enabling Single Cell/Single Molecule Research and Exploring the Toolbox”
  • “Promise and Uses of Single Cell and Single Molecule Technologies”
  • “Exploring Barriers, Challenges, and Limitations”
  • “Considerations for Application in Environmental Health”

The workshop’s preliminary agenda includes several SOT members and offers a thorough overview of the event’s schedule. For more information, please visit the workshop web page, and to register, please visit the event registration portal.
