Technological Developments

Characterizing and quantifying the exposome.

Research in this theme capitalizes on recent advances in technology that have enabled better quantification of exposures and their biological responses, including advanced integration of omics data (e.g., epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data), statistical methods to link omics data to large population-based cohorts, and techniques to quantify and source exposures to contaminants.
