EPA Seeks Research on Chemical Toxicity
Recall that in late 2010, EPA named 134 chemicals to be screened as endocrine disruptors. This effort is towards determining / communicating how chemical exposure can be causally related to adverse, apical outcomes related to development and reproduction.
This effort is part of EPA's Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program.
Current requested applications to research chemical affects will ideally address substance toxicity modulated by:
- chemical effects on the endocrine system, or
- a variety of other pathways
