STAR New Methods in 21st Century Exposure Science Kick-off Meeting

Title: STAR New Methods in 21st Century Exposure Science Kick-off Meeting
Date: February 3 - 4, 2015
Location: Research Triangle Park, NC and Online Webinar

EPA brings together the five New Methods in 21st Century Exposure Science grantees. The research focuses on finding innovative technology to characterize the presence and co-occurrence of chemicals in indoor environments from consumer products. This research looks at developing data that can be used for model predication, and develop technology for future exposure modeling for chemical profiling and biological pathways, with consumer products.
