Areas of Interest

This FOA will stimulate the development of innovative statistical, data science, or other quantitative methods to studying environmental chemical mixtures using an interdisciplinary approach. Approaches of interest will account for the known data complexities as well as the underlying biology of exposures to guide statistical and mathematical models. Methods must include concepts from the fields of statistics, mathematics, epidemiology, toxicology, biology, economics, informatics, engineering, data science, or related fields. Projects supported under this FOA will further the development of innovative approaches, expanding beyond traditional statistical methodologies, with practical applications in environmental epidemiology.
