Abstract

The environment plays a major role in human health, yet tools to study the health impacts of complex environmental exposures are lacking. In 2005, Christopher Wild introduced the concept of the exposome, which encompasses environmental exposures and concomitant biological responses throughout the life course. Exposome-based approaches have the potential to enable novel insights into numerous research questions in environmental health sciences. To promote and develop the concept of the exposome, the Health and Exposome Research Center: Understanding Lifetime Exposures (HERCULES) Exposome Research Center at Emory University held the first Emory Exposome Summer Course from 13–17 June 2016.
