Description

Description

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.
