Description


The Eighth International PCB Workshop: PCBs in Schools organizers are dedicated to bringing together the very latest information on the chemistry, biology and threat to human health of PCBs as environmental pollutants. The Woods Hole PCB Workshop will provide an opportunity for researchers of varied backgrounds and expertise to integrate their knowledge and experience, and to apply these to questions of the detection, movement, metabolism, toxicity, remediation and risk assessment for this class of industrial chemicals and environmental contaminants. The structure of the workshop will support interaction among researchers by having all oral presentations in plenary sessions. Speakers provide a general and comprehensive overview of selected topics mentioning their own contributions and those of others. Poster presentations will be solicited as well. Ample time will be provided during the coffee and lunch breaks for poster viewing and discussion.
