Chapters

The Society encourages members in different geographic regions to form regional chapters to:

  • Facilitate meetings among members who reside in close proximity
  • Provide guidance on local scientific, regulatory and policy issues that require an understanding of exposure to environmental or occupational agents, and
  • Provide a forum for promoting student participation in the field of exposure science.

Continued membership in a regional chapter is predicated on membership in the Society.

ISES Europe

Six Key Objectives

  • Build a European Programme to generate, assess, exchange, and communicate experimental and model-based exposure data in support of a European strategy for exposure science in the 21st century.
  • Advance exposure science with focus on closing knowledge gaps, building science-based and operational data and methods, fostering integration and interaction of disciplines involved in exposure science, and anchoring exposure information in decision-making by all stakeholders.
  • Provide guidance and recommendations for exposure assessment in science and policy.
  • Foster the inclusion of realistic exposure information in risk assessment, alternatives assessment and chemical substitution, high-throughput risk screening, life-cycle assessment, and other regulatory and non-regulatory frameworks and management tools.
  • Strengthen the impact of exposure science on human health and environmental policies.
  • Support trans-agency and trans-institutional coordination, education, and engaging a broader European stakeholder community including triggering and supporting a European infrastructure to facilitate sharing, generation and dissemination of exposure information.

Asia Chapter

Objectives

A. To foster, promote and advance the science of exposure analysis related to environmental
stressors in human populations and ecosystems.

B. To promote communication among scientists, policy makers, the general public and other
individuals or organizations interested in items listed in Objective A.

C. To strengthen the impact of exposure science on environmental policy making.

D. To serve as the focal point for interaction of members of the Society and other interested
individuals from academia, government and industry in the East Asian countries, i.e., to provide
communication and interaction opportunities for researchers, particularly young investigators
and scientists associated with government whose opportunity to travel to international
meetings is limited.

E. To further improve understanding, awareness, and appropriate applications of exposure
science, and to promote an exchange of ideas, communication and practical experiences among
members of the academic, professional, industrial and regulatory communities engaged in
exposure science; e.g., exposure scientists, epidemiologisits, toxicologists and other scientists in
academia, government and industry in the East Asian countries.

F. To disseminate exposure information and concepts to all interested individuals.

G. To foster integration and interaction of the various disciplines involved in exposure science.

H. To hold scientific and educational meetings and workshops.

I. To act as a resource for and provide support to the Society.

Tri-State Regional Chapter (New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania)

Objectives
The Chapter’s aim is to foster and advance the science of exposure analysis related to environmental contaminants, both for human populations and ecosystems, and to promote communication among scientists, regulatory personnel, general public and other individuals or organizations

California Chapter

Objectives
The objectives of the Chapter are to foster and promote the goals, purposes, and objectives of the International Society of Exposure Science among scientists and at institutions within California. In particular, the objectives of the Chapter are to further understanding, awareness, and appropriate applications of exposure science, and to promote an exchange of ideas, communication and practical experiences among members of the academic, professional, industrial, and regulatory communities engaged in exposure science, e.g., exposure scientists, epidemiologists, toxicologists, and other scientists in academia, government, and industry in California. The Chapter aims to act as a resource for and to provide support to the Society.
