ISES: To better our world, its ecosystems, and inhabitants, by creating an international community that advances and integrates exposure science into research and action.

The International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) promotes and advances exposure science (methods, measurements, models) as it relates to the complex inter-relationships between human populations, communities, ecosystems, wildlife, and chemical, biological, and physical agents, and non-chemical stressors. ISES members have diverse expertise and training in biological, physical, environmental, and social sciences, as well as various engineering disciplines.

According to the National Research Council, “exposure science links human and ecological behavior to environmental processes in such a way that the information generated can be used to mitigate or prevent future adverse exposures.”

The Society’s multidisciplinary expertise and international reach make it the premiere professional society for practitioners associated with all aspects of exposure science

(research, teaching, policy, communication, outreach).
