Clinicians, Epidemiologists, Chemists and Biochemists:
Attribution of childhood and adult diseases to environmental insults is particularly difficult because often the adverse exposures that lead to a disease happened in the past.
Obtaining reliable information on potential environmental exposures, the amount of the exposure and timing and duration of that exposure presents a significant challenge to environmental health scientists.
Partnerships that facilitate analysis of small amounts of tissue at birth will help scientists have a better understanding of the real in utero exposures. Resulting valid data on early life exposures can be used for predicting later life disease risks and improvement in public health outcomes.
