|Title:||New Methods in 21st Century Exposure Science Kick Off Meeting|
|Date:||February 3 - 4, 2015|
|Location:||Research Triangle Park, NC and Online Webinar|
EPA brings together the five New Methods in 21st Century Exposure Science grantees. The research focuses on finding innovative technology to characterize the presence and co-occurrence of chemicals in indoor environments from consumer products. This research looks at developing data that can be used for model predication, and develop technology for future exposure modeling for chemical profiling and biological pathways, with consumer products.

|Title:||EPA/NIEHS Children's Centers 2015 Webinar Series|
|Date:||February 11, 2015 (Postponed from December 2014)
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. EST
Join us for this month's webinar. The webinar features presentations and interactive discussions including recent findings and new developments in children’s environmental health.
The Role of Environmental Exposure in Childhood Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome and Neurobehavioral Abnormalities
The causes of the childhood epidemics of neurodevelopmental disorders, obesity and its metabolic consequences, including diabetes, are not well understood. Emerging evidence suggests that exposure to common environmental chemicals, prenatally and across the course of childhood, may contribute to these outcomes. Investigators from the Children’s Environmental Health Centers will present new results on associations of ambient air pollutants, metals and endocrine disrupting chemicals with obesity and metabolic disease, and will describe potential biological pathways explaining these effects. Endocrine disrupting chemicals may target multiple organ systems, including neurobehavioral abnormalities also under study in Children’s Center cohorts.
**The registration link for the webinar will be posted on this page when it is available.**

|Title:||Cookstove Research Meeting|
|Date:||February 25, 2015: 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
February 26, 2015: 8:45 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
|Location:||EPA at Research Triangle Park, NC and Online Webinar|
Please join us for a STAR research kickoff meeting on research projects on the impacts on air quality and climate from residential cooking, heating, or lighting. STAR grantees and EPA scientists will discuss progress on their projects which aim to quantify the extent to which interventions for cleaner cooking, heating, or lighting can impact air quality and climate, which in turn affect human health and welfare.
