The society is dedicated to the enhancement, exchange, and dissemination of ongoing global research efforts in the field of hormesis. In addition, the society also strongly encourages the assessment of the implications of hormesis for such diverse fields as toxicology, risk assessment, risk communication, medicine, numerous areas of biomedical research, and all other biological disciplines including relevant engineering domains dealing with the dose response.
Conference directors Edward Calabrese, environmental health sciences, and Paul Kostecki, professor emeritus, expect the annual gathering to attract more than 100 scientists from around the world.
