Over the last years, Genome-wide Association studies (GWAS) have identified thousands of variants robustly associated with different complex traits. Large scale genotyping and meta-analyses of more than 200,000 breast cancer cases and controls, mainly through the Breast Cancer Association Consortium, led to the identification of 200 loci that are associated with breast cancer susceptibility.
This one-day online event aims to bring together the international scientific community to discuss the latest innovations, and exchange knowhow, on the science of climate change and air pollution, as well as highlight related challenges, impacts and potential solutions for the EMME region.
Building on the success of the 1st Annual Workshop in 2021, this year’s event is expected to attract a diverse group of renowned scientists and researchers from across the EMME region, Europe, and beyond.
As such, the workshop will provide a unique opportunity for networking by allowing participants to connect with researchers, scientists, and innovators with shared interests, enhance regional collaboration, increase visibility on important scientific results relevant to the EMME, and contribute to enhancing national capacities for addressing the climate crisis.
This workshop also aims to provide a forum for signposting opportunities for collaboration on competitive calls and other relevant activities that can support the international community in working together more closely to address climate change impacts and challenges.
Who is it for
Scientists, researchers, students and industry professionals actively engaged with research & innovation on aspects of climate change and air pollution in the EMME region.
