Featured Core:
Exposure Assessment Core

The Exposure Assessment Core (EAC), led by Dr. Stuart Batterman, welcomes Nicole Mitchell as the new core manager. Nicole moved here from Indiana in August, 2016, and will be managing EAC projects, serving as a liaison between the EAC and M-LEEaD members, and managing and ensuring quality data and results. The core assists M-LEEaD members by providing analytical services to measure and characterize environmental exposures, coordinate and leverage exposure assessment activities related to biomonitoring, provide statistical and modeling analysis for exposure data, and provide consulting referrals and other services related to exposure assessment.

The EAC has been added to MiCore! EAC funds are available to members to help support method development, statistical analysis, and exposure modeling and data interpretations if needed and feasible. For use of core funds please fill out the form on the M-LEEaD website for more detailed information and to view a list of the extensive analyte services. Contact Nicole Mitchell at with any questions and inquiries.
