Clinical Environmental Medicine

The health impact of chemicals in the environment is constantly increasing. There is a significant associated rise in neurological, autoimmune and cancer diseases. Male fertility decreases dramatically. However, when patients visit the doctor, hardly any examinations are carried out for possible chemical exposures.


We bring researchers and practitioners in the fields of chemical biology, environmental medicine and medical geology together to showcase the recent developments and address global challenges we face today within the field of chemical toxicology and immunology.

Prevention of Toxic Burdens

Our mission is to advocate and support the adoption and implementation of legally binding instruments which contain mandatory obligations to eliminate where feasible, and otherwise minimize, the global use of hazardous chemicals, the global demand for hazardous chemicals, releases of hazardous chemicals to the environment, and human and wildlife exposure to hazardous chemicals.
