This informally-structured workshop will discuss bystander and other non-targeted effects and their implications for biomedical and environmental research with an emphasis on the need for novel modelling approaches. Although bystander effects were first discovered after radiation exposure, they are now known to occur after metal and pathogen exposure and appear to be a fundamental stress signalling response. We will discuss gaps in knowledge and explore future activities, specifically a joint application to Horizon 2020. The workshop will be structured as a series of organised discussions on these topics, with the aim of stimulating collaborative projects between those working on the bystander effect in the biomedical arena, those working on the bystander effect in environmental and ecological settings, and modellers. A key aim of the workshop is to bring together specialised modellers in the environmental and health sciences fields with biologists and biomedical scientists working in this area.
