EPA Epidemiological Mixtures Research Participant Fellowship

EPA Epidemiological Mixtures Research Participant Fellowship

Category : Alumni

This research training opportunity is a high impact, policy-relevant research that may inform science assessments in support of EPA’s mission to protect human health and the environment.

The research participant will have the opportunity to learn approaches for the evaluation, analysis, and integration of epidemiologic evidence on the health effects of environmental pollutant exposures that can inform EPA’s scientific assessments. The research participant will have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of projects that can include qualitative or quantitative analyses of epidemiologic study findings and data. The participant will gain understanding of systematic review processes and how scientific evidence is integrated to create policy-relevant assessments and how those assessments may ultimately inform EPA’s decision-making processes.

Under the guidance of a mentor (or co-mentors if desired), the research activities may include:

  • Conducting independent epidemiological research projects, with guidance from EPA mentor(s), and author peer-reviewed publications and the opportunity to present at professional meetings based on this research
  • Developing and conducting analyses and interpretation and synthesis of results to support epidemiological studies examining environmental mixtures in relation to chemical stressors in air and water, as well as consideration of non-chemical stressors and buffers.
  • Synthesizing and communicating key approaches addressing mixtures in relation to epidemiological application
  • Devising scientific approaches to facilitate epidemiological mixtures research and interacting with EPA scientists to convey relevance to and integrate in health and risk assessment methodologies
  • Summarizing and extracting epidemiologic study information, and evaluation of concentration- or exposure-response relationships from epidemiologic data examining constituent species, joint toxicity, and/or more complex environmental mixtures
  • Applying systematic review methods to address environmental mixtures from epidemiologic data, including development and application of literature search and screening strategies, study evaluation, data extraction, and synthesis of health effects evidence
  • Dissemination of research, including study findings and related methods development, at national and international meetings is anticipated as per travel/training allowance
