EXPOSURE SCIENCE: Linking Environment and Health for Humans and Ecosystems

The International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) promotes and advances exposure science (methods, measurements, models) as it relates to the complex inter-relationships between human populations, communities, ecosystems, wildlife, and chemical, biological, and physical agents, and non-chemical stressors. ISES members have diverse expertise and training in biological, physical, environmental, and social sciences, as well as various engineering disciplines. According to the National Research Council, “exposure science links human and ecological behavior to environmental processes in such a way that the information generated can be used to mitigate or prevent future adverse exposures.”  The Society’s multidisciplinary expertise and international reach make it the premiere professional society for practitioners associated with all aspects of exposure science (research, teaching, policy, communication, outreach).

  • NEW!  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking qualified vendors to identify candidate compound(s) ubiquitous in but unique to dust that may serve as tracer(s) in a dust ingestion study. Candidate compounds may be identified through a combination of mining available data, literature review, modeling approaches, and rapid screening approaches (e.g., suspect screening/non-targeted analysis). Dust samples from recent observational exposure measurement studies where children were participants shall be used as the basis for this project. Please use FedConnect to view the Statement of Work, Proposal Submission Instructions and Evaluation Criteria. Search reference number: RFQ-DC-16-00239. Contact person: James Langan (Langan.James@epa.gov). Response due September 23, 2016.
