Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Summary of the Symposium on Gene Expression and Proteomcs in Environmental Health Research. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) established the National Center for Toxicogenomics (NCT) in June 2000. Toxicogenomics is an emerging scientific field that combines studies of genetics, genome-wide mRNA expression, cell and tissue-wide protein expression, and bioinformatics to understand the roles of gene-environment interactions in disease. The NCT was created to catalyze application of toxicogenomics to improve human health. The goals of the NCT are: 1) to develop and apply gene expression and proteomics technology to study the biological effects of chemicals and drugs; 2) to support intramural and extramural research to define the effects of environmental agents on gene expression; and 3) to develop a national reference and relational database on Chemical Exposure in Biological Systems (CEBS) that will serve as a resource in the fields of toxicology and environmental health. To further its goals, the NCT, NIEHS and NIH organized the Symposium on Gene Expression and Proteomics in Environmental Health Research. The symposium was held December 3-4, 2001 at the Natcher Center at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. More than 400 participants attended the 2 day symposium on the state-of-the-art in Toxicogenomics.
