Environmental exposures pose a complex and constantly evolving threat to genomic integrity, putting our children and ourselves at increased risk of disease. The EMGS Annual Meeting uniquely brings together leading scientists from academia, industry, and government to discuss cutting-edge research aimed at understanding and mitigating environmental threats to the genome and to the epigenome.

Our dynamic and interactive meetings are designed to promote the Society’s mission to foster scientific research, education, and collaboration with a focus on issues pertinent to genomic stability. Emphasis areas include DNA damage, DNA repair, mutagenesis, heritable effects, and epigenetic alterations in genome function. Additionally, the EMGS aims to promote the application and communication of knowledge relevant to genetic toxicology testing, risk assessment, and regulatory policy-making to protect human health and the environment.

For decades, the EMGS Annual Meeting has been creating opportunities for new investigators to join a welcoming community of scientists working in research institutions, regulatory agencies, and industry, all with a shared commitment toward public health. The Society puts a major focus on supporting the next generation of scientists through both formal and informal activities throughout the meeting.
