Emerging Technologies to Advance Research and Decisions on the Environmental Health Effects of Microplastics
January 27, 2020 @ 8:00 am - January 28, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
This workshop will bring together the environmental science and health communities to explore how emerging technologies and research strategies could help address important environmental health questions about microplastics.
Participants will explore methods to detect and quantify microplastics in food and the environment, delve into research on the effects of microplastics on the health of humans and wildlife, and discuss ways to reduce microplastics in the environment. The workshop will end with a session on how these new approaches may be leveraged to inform public health and policy questions.
