Our scientists are experts in fully characterizing health effects from exposure to metals such as lead, arsenic, and cadmium; chemicals including chlorinated solvents, petroleum hydrocarbons, dioxins, and volatile organic compounds; and physical agents such as asbestos.
We help manufacturers or users of commercial products obtain and interpret the information they need to address product safety concerns. Our scientific support includes toxicological evaluation, literature compilation and critical evaluation, exposure analyses, assessment of product composition and stability, and effective interpretation of data for diverse audiences.
Bioavailability considerations are often important to gaining a more accurate assessment of exposure and dose-response. Led by an internationally-recognized expert on bioavailability in soils, our applied toxicology experts help clients resolve critical questions about relative bioavailability of chemicals such as metals ingested in soil and in the human diet.
