Methods and Tools to Support Aquatic and Human Health

October 25, 2023

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: Webinar

This presentation will discuss recent findings that sublethal toxicity is strongly related to both fluorinated chain length and the structure of the non-fluorinated “head” group. These findings, combined with information on bioaccumulation, suggest that multiple mechanisms of toxic action exist. Mixture experiments to date have indicated additive, but not synergistic, interactions of PFASs within and between classes. We will discuss implications of these findings along with ongoing research directions to better understand risks to aquatic life.
