FGF-Workshop "Omics for Assessing Unclear Risks, Berlin 2008

Title: 17. FGF-Workshop (in cooperation with the IMBA-Network)
Omics for Assessing Unclear Risks
Year: Mai, 26-28 2008 in Berlin
Topic: Risk assessment with regard to carcinogenicity so far is largely based on evidence from epidemiological and animal studies while in vitro studies only play a supporting role. <br> The aim of this international workshop is to explore the potential of omics technologies for assessing unclear cancer risks. This will be done with the example of the effects of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMF).
