Epigenetics and risk assessment: Where do we stand?

There is less than one week to go to EFSA’s scientific colloquium on epigenetics, which will take place on 14-15 June in Valencia, Spain. About 100 scientists, risk managers and policymakers will examine where we stand regarding our knowledge of epigenetic mechanisms.  Several discussion groups will look at debated questions in this field, including epigenetics and chemical risk assessment in humans; epigenetics in risk assessment of farmed animals for food production; and epigenetics and environmental risk assessment.
