Title: The 9th Conference on Metal Toxicity and Carcinogenesis: The conference overview

Abstract

Heavy metals, such as arsenic, chromium, cadmium, nickel, mercury, and uranium are known to cause many human diseases and health complications after occupational or environmental exposure. Consequently, metals are environmental health concerns. This manuscript is an overview of the 9th Conference on Metal Toxicity and Carcinogenesis held in October 2016 in Lexington, Kentucky. Since 2000, this biennial meeting brings together experts in the field to discuss current and prospective research in an effort to advance research pertaining to metal toxicity and carcinogenesis. In this review we summarize the major topics discussed and provide insight regarding current research in the field and an account of the direction in which the field is progressing. - Highlights: • An overview of the 9th Conference on Metal Toxicity and Carcinogenesis. • Current progress on mechanisms of metal-induced health concerns. • Prospective areas for future studies for the metal toxicity and carcinogenesis.
