Fighting unknown chemicals: analytical strategies for risk prioritization

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations

Description

In chemical risk assessment, we have always relied on an availability or attainability of exposure and hazard assessments. Although this never was easy, it has nowadays become nigh impossible because relevant data is rarely and scarcely available, while the number of known chemicals is merely the tip of the iceberg of total available chemicals. To investigate, elucidate, and assess the poorly-understood potential risk of unknown chemicals, we need novel analytical methodologies and a change in the mind-set of risk assessment.
