We are organizing a Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) for the publication of the Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Environmental Research and Public Health—Addressing Environmental Threats to Human Health from Pregnancy to Senility, which is being held on 4–6 May 2020 at Centro Congressi “Federico II”, University of Naples Federico II in Naples, Italy. IJERPH is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Throughout the lifespan, environmental exposures can influence the prevalence and severity of diseases. Environmental hazards increase the risk of cancer, heart disease, asthma, and many other illnesses. These hazards can be physical (e.g., pollution, toxic chemicals, and food contaminants) or social (e.g., dangerous work, poor housing conditions, urban sprawl, and poverty). This conference welcomes and brings together leading experts in the field of environmental research and public health, from academia and industry to share their recent findings. It also welcomes inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary contributions from both theoretical and applied perspectives. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles to this Special Issue. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Environmental exposure, health and safety;
- Epigenetics and gene–environment interactions;
- Environmental epidemiology and toxicology;
- Endocrine disruptors;
- Climate change and public health;
- Emerging issues in environmental health.
