Integrating Environmental Data with Other Omics for Cancer Epidemiology

Tuesday & Wednesday, February 14 – 15, 2023

Integrating Environmental Data with Other Omics for Cancer Epidemiology Abstract

Virtual Workshop


The purpose of this two-day virtual workshop is to identify the challenges and opportunities related to the integration of environmental exposure data with other omics data for human cancer population studies and to inform future supported research directions for the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). This workshop is part of the NCI/NIEHS Cancer and the Environment Working Group’s effort to promote research into the effects of environmental exposures on cancer risk and etiology.


  1. To understand the challenges and opportunities in integrating environmental data with other omics.
  2. To identify the possible approaches and best practices for multi-omic integration including environmental data.
  3. To identify special considerations for using environmental and multi-omic data for cancer epidemiology.
  4. To determine how experimental models integrating environmental exposures and genomic (or other Omic) effects can be used to inform cancer risk assessment.
