Kristin Passero (Hall Lab PhD student) and Molly Hall organized the session “What about the environment? Leveraging multi-omic datasets to characterize the environment’s role in human health” for the Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing with environmental health research experts Dr. Chirag Patel (Harvard Medical School), Dr. Arjun Manrai (Harvard Medical School), Dr. Kimberly McAllister (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences), and Dr. Shefali Setia Verma (University of Pennsylvania).

Kristin published an introduction to the session and gave an introductory talk as well. Hall Lab MD/PhD student, Morris Aguilar, also gave a talk on his metabolomics research.
