EPA Cumulative Risk Assessment
Deadline: June 17, 2009

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications from interdisciplinary teams to address research needs that currently limit the ability to conduct cumulative risk assessments. Exposure to different combinations of environmental stressors can contribute to increased risk for negative health consequences. It has become clear that cumulative risk assessments should include both chemical and nonchemical stressors, exposures from multiple routes, and factors that differentially affect exposure or toxicity to communities. This RFA is focusing on two challenges that exist in conducting cumulative risk assessments: (a) STAR-E1: The development of statistical and other analytical techniques that will enable the analysis of disparate types of data, and (b) STAR-E2: The evaluation of the combined effects of nonchemical and chemical stressors.
