Endocrine disruptors: effects on wildlife and human health
The 2nd internationalworkshop of the national research programme on endocrine disruptors (PNRPE) will deal with the effects that endocrine disruptors can have on ecosystems and human health. Many substances capable of interfering with the hormonal regulation of living beings are considered to be endocrine disruptors. In humans, as in wildlife, there are a variety of potential health consequences of this interference: fertility disorders, developmental, metabolic and behavioural problems, damage to the immune system, cancer, etc.
The workshop will be organized into several sessions addressing the following topics:
- Epigenetics, transgenerational effects
- Adaptative mechanisms in wildlife
- Metabolic disorders, diabetes
- Neurodevelopment and neuroendocrine mechanisms
- The reproductive system (with a focus on female reproduction)
- Pesticides in foods, including natural toxins
- The immune system and allergy
- Endocrine disruption and cancer
- BPA and BPA substitutes
Following a presentation of the latest scientific advances in the field of endocrine disruption by internationally recognized researchers (Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, Germaine Buck-Louis, René Habert, Christy Morrisey & Léo Trasande, etc.), the workshop will end with a round table of the stakeholders.
This workshop is funded by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy.
Scientific Committee: Barbara Demeneix (présidente), Gérard Lasfargues, Niels-Erik Skakkebaek, Rémy Slama.
