Specific Aims

  • Provide analytical chemical support to the Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Project and the Pesticide Exposure Pathways Project by conducting analyses for OP pesticides and metabolites in house dust, vehicle dust and adult and child urine samples.
  • Provide assistance with the interpretation of exposure data to the CBPR Project and the Pesticide Exposure Pathways Project.
  • Coordinate mechanistic modeling of exposure and dose among all Center projects to be linked with dynamic modeling performed by the Risk Characterization Core.
