Western Tracking Biomonitoring Collaborative

Investigators: Len Flowers (PI), John Balmes (UCB Representative), and state collaborators AK, AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, NV, NM, OR, UT, WA, WY, HI

We helped to establish this new group with the goal of facilitating dialogue among state EPHT programs, the Rocky Mountain Biomonitoring Consortium programs, and other state public health laboratories and departments about possible regional biomonitoring projects. We look forward to participating with our WTBC partners in the important discussion of how biomonitoring data might best be used in EPHT. We will also be participating in a project run by the Berkeley Superfund Basic Research Program that addresses issues related to the use of biomonitoring data in environmental health research and surveillance.
