Neurotoxic Metals: Lead, Manganese, and Mercury—From Research to Prevention

17–18 June 2006, Brescia, Italy

The International Workshop on Neurotoxic Metals: Lead, Manganese, and Mercury—From Research to Prevention will be held in Brescia, Italy, 17–18 June 2006.

Different integrated functions of the nervous system are sensitive targets for metal toxicity. The implementation of preventive programs has lead to a decrease in occupational exposure levels to heavy metals, but environmental exposure has increased so that it is now ubiquitous. New research has shown that adverse effects may occur at “low” levels previously thought to be safe. Given the increasing life expectancy and duration of working life, there is a growing concern about the possible long-term effects on the nervous system of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and manganese. Therefore, more research is needed into exposure-related health effects so that preventive measures may be implemented by governmental and regulatory agencies.

This international workshop will facilitate information exchange among researchers, risk assessors, regulatory bodies, public health authorities, and stakeholders. Details on each session and topics to be discussed are available on the conference Web site.
