The purpose of this Banbury Center meeting is to develop an operational definition for exposomics that aligns with broader goals to seek fundamental knowledge and apply it.

Discussions focused on:

  • Developing an operational definition* of exposomics for biomedical research;
  • Identifying the components of the biomedical enterprise that will benefit most from exposomics (research, discovery, clinical trials, diagnosis, etc);
  • Outlining conceptual and technical innovations that will be needed to establish exposomics a bona fide -omics discipline

Two main outputs were expected:

  • A two-page white paper that provides the rationale and utility of the operational definition
  • An academic manuscript that explains how the operational definition can be used to advance the field of exposomics

Our work will provide stakeholders and the scientific community with an unambiguous definition of the exposome that can be used to advance our understanding of the environmental contributors to human disease and health.

At the meeting, there were about twenty participants, most of them US based. The participants from Europe, Jana Klánová, Robert Barouki and Roel Vermeulen representing both the EIRENE RI and the IHEN project.

The report from the meeting is here.
