The Triangle in North Carolina, which includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and adjoining cities, as well as Research Triangle Park, is of tremendous relevance to EMGS.  It is the home of many of our founders, past officers, and current members.  Our meeting will draw on the rich resources there, including two federal agencies, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, as well as major research universities (Duke, UNC, NCSU, and NCCU).  Along with 6 other colleges and universities, these institutions are training nearly 100,000 students in The Triangle.  For these and many other reasons, we are excited to hold our meeting in Raleigh.  Rob Sobol and Natalie Gassman are doing a tremendous job as Program Chair and New Investigator Co-Chair, galvanizing a meeting around the theme of Environmental Health Sciences, Bridging the Gap between Exposure, Mechanism and Public Health.  I look forward to seeing you there!

Thomas E. Wilson, M.D. Ph.D., EMGS President
