SCOPE/IUPAC International Symposium on Endocrine Active Substances

The Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE) and IUPAC 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 SCOPE/IUPAC International Symposium on Endocrine Active Substances, to be held 17-21 November 2002 in Yokohama, Japan, will constitute a major milestone for the project. All of the project contributors (ca. 60 experts) will present papers dealing with the following 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
  • In addition, six supplementary workshops will be held:
  • 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
