National Institutes of Health awards ~$49 million to contribute to studies of the early-life exposome

Early this week the National Institute of Health revealed the awards for the Children’s Health Exposure Analysis Resource (CHEAR), a research initiative that will facilitate the implementation of the exposome concept into children’s health studies. Under the direction of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), CHEAR will provide laboratory and data analysis services to […]

Quantification of Chemicals through High-Resolution Metabolomics

Detection and quantification of both known and unknown exposures are key to characterizing cumulative complex exposures. Although high-resolution metabolomics (HRM) has been well-established as a tool for distinguishing these exposures, quantification of chemical signatures under this platform remains a challenge. Traditional biomonitoring is typically used for quantification of individual chemicals but has limitations due to […]
