Biomarkers of response to environmental stressors: Measurement of environmental exposures to metals and chemical toxicants  

Researchers will develop BRES (biomarkers of response to environmental stressors) to define patterns of response to benefit the Gene Environment Initiative, focusing on xenobiotic biotransformation in human disease like autism. The BRES will lead to reliable measurements of exposures, which can be correlated with variable susceptibility to metal toxicity in the human population.

Strategic Plan Question Question 3: What Caused This To Happen And Can This Be Prevented? (Risk Factors)
Strategic Plan Objective Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 3.3 Within the highest priority categories of exposures for ASD, identify and standardize at least three measures for identifying markers of environmental exposure in biospecimens by 2011. IACC Recommended Budget: $3,500,000 over 3 years.
