Validation Methods

Exposure Biology Program

Research efforts have validated exposure assessment technologies and candidate biomarkers in small population studies. This research has added value to all of the Exposure Biology programs by establishing connections that facilitate employing new exposure technologies in large-scale epidemiological studies. The Exposure Biology Validation program supports the synthesis of exposure and response data to establish predictable relationships between the two and to better define their impact on overall health outcomes.
