  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
