The Monticello Conference in Charlottesville (Virginia, USA)

The Monticello Conference on asbestos and elongated mineral particles was held on 16-20 October in Charlottesville (Virginia, USA)

The aim of the conference was to have in depth discussion on the topics pertinent to determining 1) how to identify and quantify non-asbestiform EMP exposures, 2) if they cause or have the capacity to cause health effects; 3) the mechanisms by which they may produce adverse health effects and 4) if possible, the levels of risk associated with exposure to them.

Italy was represented by Alessandro Gualtieri – TOXICITY PREDICTION – Towards a general model to predict the toxicity of mineral fibers.
