What is Exposure?
What do Exposure Scientists Do?
Exposure Science can run the gamut from basic bench science to field studies and community-based studies. Exposure Scientists may be involved in one or more of the following activities:
Measure Individual or Population Exposure using controlled experiments, assays, personal monitors, sensors, and surveys
Understand Routes of Exposure
Study Health Effects of Exposure
Identify Exposure Mitigation Strategies
Implement Exposure Mitigation Approaches
Devise Interventions to Reduce Exposure
Design Exposure Feedback and Control Systems
Work with Communities
Educate and Inform the Public
Work Towards Health Equity and Environmental Justice
