ISES Conference 2014 - From Big Data to Aggregate Exposure

The 24th annual meeting of the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) Conference was held at the historic Hilton Netherland Plaza in downtown Cincinnati where, according to a picture on the wall, Doris Day and various others have performed throughout the years. The art deco interior of the 3rd and 4th floor provided the scene for the latest research in exposure science.

The Creme Global Reformulation Project - Better Science, Better Food, Better Lifestyle

We were delighted to present at the recent Nutrition and Health Foundation’s (NHF) annual seminar, where the theme this year was ‘Better Science, Better Food, Better Lifestyle’. Amongst some very interesting talks on the day from Irish food service providers, government bodies and professional athletes, Aileen Connolly presented on the Creme Global Reformulation Project, a groundbreaking body of work which we are currently running in conjunction with Food and Drink Industry Ireland (FDII). This project aims to answer the question “What are the effects of product reformulation on Irish consumers’ nutrient intakes?”.

EUROTOX 2014 - Predictive Toxicology, Endocrine Disruption, and Wonky Dose Response Curves

There were of course many more themes discussed at the 50th Congress of the European Society of Toxicology, but those in the title of this blog were some of my personal highlights. Held in the historic city of Edinburgh, the meeting had plenty of interesting and engaging symposia and scientific discussions, as well as a lively social programme including a céilí (a traditional Scottish or Irish dance) which was a very welcome addition.
