The smell of roses, the taste of chocolate, and a touch of lipstick all have a few things in common. Of course, these items are often associated with Valentine’s Day, but they also are a great example of the various ways we are exposed to chemicals in our everyday lives. In this Science Speakeasy, we will evaluate the entire journey of some common chemicals, from point of manufacture to human exposure, and understand how risk assessors and regulators determine the safety of a chemical before its introduction into the environment and market

Every human carries a unique individual genome. The ways in which human genomes are similar or different to one another is just now being detailed at high resolution thanks to technological advances in DNA sequencing. These new observations reveal much about our origins as humans and the evolutionary processes that shape both human adaptation and disease.
