Non-SOT Event: The Exposome Boot Camp: Measuring Exposures on an Omic Scale

Starts:  Jul 18, 2024 10:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Jul 19, 2024 05:00 PM (ET)

This two-day intensive boot camp integrates the principle concepts of exposomics and the untargeted approaches of measuring endogenous and exogenous chemical exposures on an omic scale as we step through the tools and techniques currently available to analyze the exposome. Led by a team of expert scientists in the rapidly growing field of exposomics, the boot camp will integrate seminar lectures with hands-on computer lab sessions to put concepts into practice. Emphasis will be given to leveraging existing resources from ongoing studies and initiating new investigations. The afternoon lab sessions will provide an opportunity to work hands-on with real data. Participants will learn and practice data handling, cleaning, and basic analysis of exposomics data.

Investigators at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.

This training presented by the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health is designed to accommodate investigators with varying experience levels in R. Knowing R basics is beneficial to maximize training from the boot camp, but is not necessary for you to strongly engage with training material. Data labs will be offered during the training and are meant to accommodate both beginner and advanced data manipulation, with all material and additional resources available after the training.

Capacity is limited. Paid registration is required to attend.
