Substances able to interfere with our hormonal system, endocrine disruptors can be found in food, cosmetics, packaging, medicines and crop treatment products. Faced with the specific natures of these compounds and the diverse sources of exposure, developing research is crucial in order to better understand their effects depending on exposure doses and vulnerability periods and to reinforce risk monitoring, prevention and management. These issues are at the heart of the new draft national endocrine disruptors strategy (SNPE2) covering the period 2019-2022.
In this context, Anses and ANR are coming together once again at a day of scientific conferences to present the achievements of the research projects funded by the Anses national employment, health and employment research programme (PNR EST) and several ANR calls for proposals. ANR has funded 78 projects in this field since 2005.
Endocrine disruptor research prospects will be addressed at the end of the day.
