Description

The past decade has seen advancements in methods for measuring environmental exposures in biological specimens, such as blood or tissue. Chemicals can now be measured more accurately and with smaller volumes of specimens. Biorepositories that store many biospecimens are maintained by the Department of Defense (DoD) for medical purposes.

To help determine the feasibility of using these biorepositories to conduct research on environmental and occupational exposures experienced by servicemembers, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a two-day workshop in June 2018. This publication briefly summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
