• October 2023 | Prof. A. Heather Eliassen visits Vienna

    On Oct 3, we had the honour of welcoming Prof. A. Heather Eliassen, a distinguished US researcher in nutrition and epidemiology from Harvard's Chan School of Public Health.

    Heather, who oversees the development of the EIRENE national node “Exposome Austria” as one of its advisory board members, delivered an enlightening lecture on 'Leveraging biomarkers in breast cancer epidemiology' at Medical University of Vienna and later took the time to meet with Exposome Austria consortium members, Prof. Eva Schernhammer and Prof. Benedikt Warth at the Mass Spectrometry Center of the University of Vienna. A day brimming with insights and collaboration.

  • What are the primary triggers of chronic diseases.
  • How exposome research contributes to unraveling the causes of breast cancer.
  • Why we should be shifting from the repair to personalized prevention medicine.

  • June 2023 ASMS 2023 | Exposome Austria at Mass Spec conference in Houston

Early this month, three members of the Exposome Austria team at the University of Vienna - Benedikt Warth, Max. L. Feuerstein and Vinicius V. Hernandes - traveled overseas to Houston, Texas, to present current exposomics research at the 71st conference of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS). Much interest in our new methods and results!

While Benedikt contributed as a presider of one the exposomics interest group workshops and gave a talk Exposomic approaches for next-generation human biomonitoring, our team has also a chance to present their posters on the following topics:

- Integrating veterinary drugs and pesticides into a targeted LC-MS/MS exposome-scale
(Md Zakir Hossain et.al., presented by Benedikt Warth)
- Multi-class assessment of chemical exposure in dried blood spots: a pilot study (Vinicius V.
  Hernandes et. al.)
- HRMS-based Exposomics for Evaluating Embryonic Exposure and Cross-Placental Transfer of       
(Max L. Feuerstein et.al.)
