Environmental Measures and Methods

The Exposure Measures and Methods Research Interest Group of CURES brings together investigators with expertise in exposure assessment and interest in developing innovative approaches to evaluating environmental health exposures. Exposures of interest include classic and emerging environmental toxicants but also extend to social and built environmental determinants of health as well as psychosocial and physiological outcomes of environmental exposures. The primary goal of the group is to develop and implement methods and measures that will strengthen their active research programs as well as serve investigative teams across CURES.
