In Situ Evaluation of Biological Hazards of Environmental Pollutants Introductory Remarks

  • Anne P. Sassaman
Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 38)


The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, although a relative newcomer to some of the areas to be discussed, is looking forward to new opportunities for the Institute as a result of authorities contained in the last Superfund reauthorization. Although this introduction is not meant to focus solely on the NIEHS Superfund Basic Research Program, or to be limited to human health consequences of environmental pollutants, these two particular areas will be emphasized because of the NIEHS’s particular responsibilities and mission. The Institute appreciates the opportunity to be involved in this meeting, for we believe that the inclusion of human health aspects is an important and essential part of the topics to be discussed.
