演講分享:醫學與公衛共舞-從知識創新到公衛倡議

學生:「老師,您在研究或執行任務遭遇的力不從心或因外力無法順利時,如何調適心理?」師:「永遠保持熱情,就會找到途徑。」陳保中所長受高雄醫學大學邀請於「校長講座」為醫學大學的學生們演說,以他獻身公共衛生議題、推動公共衛生師法的經驗,為莘莘學子傳達公共衛生的重要與期許,讓我們一起聆聽~~

<strong> ISEE 2023 在臺灣 </strong>

ISEE 2023 在臺灣

國際環境流行病學學會研討會 (ISEE) 前次在臺灣舉行是25年前由陳建仁前副總統擔任主席,2021年起,國家環境醫學研究所陳保中所長積極爭取,再次迎來ISEE在臺灣舉辦。2023年將於高雄展覽館舉行,由本院、高雄醫學大學與高雄市政府共同主辦,也將與公共衛生聯合年會共同舉辦。敬邀公共衛生先進,共襄盛舉~~

Integrated analysis of source-specific risks for PM<sub>2.5</sub>-bound metals in urban, suburban, rural, and industrial areas
 
Integrated analysis of source-specific risks for PM2.5-bound metals in urban, suburban, rural, and industrial areas
We found that the concentrations of Fe, Zn, V, Cu, and Mn (industry-related metals) were higher at the industrial site (Kaohsiung) and Ba, Cr, Ni, Mo, and Co (traffic-related metals) were higher at the urban site (Taipei). The rural site (Hualian) had good air quality, with low PM2.5 and metal concentrations. Most metal concentrations were higher during the cold season for all study sites, except for the rural.
Exposure profiles of workers from indium tin oxide target manufacturing and recycling factories in Taiwan
 
Exposure profiles of workers from indium tin oxide target manufacturing and recycling factories in Taiwan
Indium tin oxide exposure poses a potential health risk, but the exposure assessment in occupational setting remains incomplete and continues to be a significant challenge. The varying levels of relationship noted between indium exposure and the levels of P–In and U–In among workers with different work types suggested that setting the exposure limits among different work types is warranted.
Association between arsenic exposure, DNA damage, and urological cancers incidence: A long-term follow-up study of residents in an arseniasis endemic area of northeastern Taiwan
 
Association between arsenic exposure, DNA damage, and urological cancers incidence: A long-term follow-up study of residents in an arseniasis endemic area of northeastern Taiwan
In 2018, bladder and kidney cancers were the 14th and 17th leading causes of global cancer mortality, respectively. Our aim was to investigate the association between arsenic exposure, DNA damage, and the incidence of bladder and kidney cancers.
Maternal proximity to petrochemical industrial parks and risk of premature rupture of membranes
 
Maternal proximity to petrochemical industrial parks and risk of premature rupture of membranes
The results of the present work provide evidence that living near petrochemical industrial parks (PIPs) during pregnancy would increase the risk of premature rupture of membranes (PROM), and additional studies are warranted to confirm our findings.
Lipid peroxidation metabolites associated with biomarkers of inflammation and oxidation stress in workers handling carbon nanotubes and metal oxide nanoparticles
 
Lipid peroxidation metabolites associated with biomarkers of inflammation and oxidation stress in workers handling carbon nanotubes and metal oxide nanoparticles
These results provided evidence that exposure to nano-TiO2, nano-SiO2, and CNTs may lead to lipid peroxidation in EBC. For routine biomonitoring purposes, this finding, which came through non-invasive methods, may be useful for workers exposed to nanomaterials (NMs).
Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor is Essential in the Control of Lung Club Cell Homeostasis
 
Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor is Essential in the Control of Lung Club Cell Homeostasis
Club cells play an important role in maintaining lung homeostasis and aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is known to be important in xenobiotic metabolism, but its role in regulating club cells is currently unknown. Under the condition of pulmonary inflammation, AhR is critical in controlling lung club cell homeostasis via targeting Notch1 signaling and the generation of anti-inflammatory mediators.

2022亞洲氣膠研討會

2022亞洲氣膠研討會

亞洲氣膠研討會 (Asian Aerosol Conference, AAC) 是由亞洲國家 (臺灣、日本、韓國、大陸、香港、泰國、印度等) 氣膠研究學會所組成舉辦,二年一次在亞洲國家輪流舉辦,是國際氣膠研究交流盛事。今年由台灣氣膠研究學會主辦,地點在國立臺灣大學。

2022精準環境醫學研討會(春季會):重金屬與健康

2022精準環境醫學研討會(春季會):重金屬與健康

過去重金屬污染幾乎總是遵循工業、大氣、土壤、水、食品和人類循環污染鏈,對人類健康產生威脅,農地的重金屬污染是居住環境污染議題,同時與農產及食品安全也息息相關,對於人體健康影響更是重大的議題。本次研討會由本院與彰濱秀傳醫院共同主辦,並規劃3個平行討論議題:「農地土壤環境重金屬污染與管理」、「重金屬人體監測」、「人體重金屬健康效應與敏感性」,期望經由不同背景的專家的交流與溝通,提供立法及行政機關建言以落實降低環境對國人重大疾病的影響以維護國人生活品質,以提升我國整體健康經濟效益。

2022職業衛生暨職業醫學與護理國際學術研討會

2022職業衛生暨職業醫學與護理國際學術研討會

本次國際學術研討會由中華民國環境職業醫學會、台灣職業衛生學會、台灣職業健康護理學會、國立成功大學、勞動部職業安全衛生署與勞動部勞動及職業安全衛生研究所共同主辦。主題為「後疫情時代的健康職場及全人健康」,期望經由多位國際專家學者專題演講、職業衛生/環境職業醫學多元主題之專題論壇、學術暨實務論文發表等促進交流及討論,以創新思維解決目前所面臨之職業健康問題。
