(NIEHS, 2000-2004) The work of the PNASH Center has led to improved methods of dermal exposure assessment for agricultural workers and more accurate models for dermal absorption of pesticides. Our work with the direct-reading ATR-FTIR method shows promise as a rapid and inexpensive method for determining pesticide concentrations on the skin and uptake rates.
