SCOPE/IUPAC Project on Endocrine Active Substances & International Symposium
Organized by: SCOPE (Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment),
IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry)
Yokohama, Japan

SCOPE/IUPAC International Symposium on Endocrine Active Substances.17 - 21 November 2002, Yokohama, Japan. SCOPE (Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment) and IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) are jointly organizing an International Project on "Environmental Implications of Endocrine Active Substances: Present State of the Art and Future Research Needs". The project started in April 2000 and is scheduled to be completed in March 2003. The Symposium constitutes a major milestone of the Project. All the project contributors (ca. 60 experts) will present papers at Oral Sessions and Poster/Discussion Sessions. In addition, six supplementary Workshops will be held.


Session Topics:

Molecular Mode of Action of Nuclear Receptors; Fundamentals for Understanding the Action of Endocrine Active Substances.

Environmental Fate and Metabolism of Endocrine Active Substances

Effects of Endocrine Active Chemicals in Rodents and Humans, and Risk Assessments for Humans

Effects of Endocrine Active Substances in Wildlife Species

Workshops:

Effectiveness of QSAR for prescreening of endocrine disruptor hazard.
Toxicogenomics as a rational approach to endocrine disruptor research.
The need for establishing integrated monitoring programs.
Simple, rapid assay for conventional definitive testings of endocrine disruptor hazard.
Precautionary principle/approach and weight of evidence in endocrine disruptor issues.
Risk management options for endocrine disruptors in national and international programs.
