EDC-MixRisk Project Partner, Prof. Christina Rudén (Stockholm University) will be discussing the SYRINA framework at an upcoming workshop “Association or causation in miasmas and mixtures: Current reflections on Bradford Hill’s 1965 contribution to Public Health”. The meeting will be organized in London, Royal Society of Medicine 13-14 October 2016.

The title of Prof. Rudén’s speech will be: Bradford Hill and evaluating evidence for action on endocrine disrupting chemicals: SYRINA.

The key messages of her speech point to the need of novel approaches to be used in risk assessment of endocrine disrupting chemicals. The SYRINA framework adds structure and transparency in the assessment process. It also encourages inclusion of all data – both regulatory studies and academic research, and allows integration of data from different streams of evidence to support conclusions. The method has been developed in international cooperation, with a main contribution from the EDC-MixRisk project.

The workshop is organized by the Epidemiology & Public Health Section of RSM in partnership with Brunel University London, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Imperial College London. For more information about the event: https://www.rsm.ac.uk/events/eph01
