Risk Assessment: How It Works and How Your Research Can Help

This webinar was designed for SRP trainees and grantees to help answer questions about what is involved in the EPA human health risk assessment process and how toxicological research, including study design and evaluation, is used in this assessment. This is a great opportunity for you to learn how to make your research even more relevant to the protection of human and environmental health. We hope that you will be able to participate.
