GLIN==> Symposium on Health Effects of Dioxins and PCBs: June 1-2, Madison, Wis.



Ah Receptor-Mediated Disruption and Developmental Toxicology

June 1-2, 2000 

University of Wisconsin-Madison 
Environmental Health Sciences Center for Developmental and Molecular
Toxicology 
Pyle Center, 702 Langdon Street
Madison, Wis.

The symposium will lead off with a public forum -- from 1:00-5:00 pm on
Thursday, June 1 -- on the potential health effects of dioxins and PCBs.
Subsequent sessions will be oriented towards researchers in the field and
will explore the role of Ah receptor in developmental toxicities.  A keynote
lecture Thursday evening will be given by Dr. James Whitlock of Stanford
University.  On Friday, June 2, internationally recognized leaders will
address Ah receptor-dependent signaling events, evolution of the Ah
receptor, and developmental toxicity associated with Ah receptor agonists.
Emerging technologies for gene targeting such as whole animal and
tissue-specific inactivation of Ah receptor and ARNT genes as well as the
use of toxicogenomics for analysis of responses to environmental chemicals
will be highlighted. Round table discussions following each session will
foster identification of new and promising areas for research.
