Webinars. Environmental. 2017. Risk e-Learning Webinars. Analytical Tools and Methods

Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research Program (SRP) invites you to join us for the second session in a series of free Risk e-Learning webinars, Analytical Tools and Methods, hosted on EPA’s Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website. The series features innovative analytical tools and methods developed and used by SRP grantees. The presenters will highlight the benefits of these new tools and methods compared to conventional approaches. They also will include information about how the technology has helped to facilitate ongoing SRP research.
Session II - Techniques for Trace Analysis of Metals and Chemical Metabolites will be held Monday, May 22 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm EDT. In this session, speakers will highlight techniques to measure trace levels of metals and chemical metabolites to better understand environmentally relevant exposures. For more information about each presentation and to register, visit EPA’s CLU-IN Training & Events webpage.
Session II Presentations:
• Spatially resolved elemental analysis for low-level trace metal analysis and speciation, Tracy Punshon, Ph.D., Dartmouth College
• Accelerator mass spectrometry for human monitoring of metabolism of hazardous chemicals at low, environmentally realistic levels, Bruce Buchholz, Ph.D., Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
• High resolution mass spectrometry for non-targeted environmental exposomics, Lee Ferguson, Ph.D., Duke University
Registration is also open for the third session, Fate and Transport of Contaminants, which will be held on Monday, June 12 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm EDT. During this session, speakers will highlight tools and methods to detect contaminants and measure their fate and transport in the environment, including work related to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and chlorinated volatile organic contaminants in the environment. Presenters include: Keri Hornbuckle, Ph.D., University of Iowa SRP Center; Jennifer Guelfo, Ph.D., Brown University SRP Center; and Mark Brusseau, Ph.D., University of Arizona SRP Center.
The webinars are free and open to the public. Please visit the Risk e-Learning website for more information about each session, a list of presenters, and links to register.
