End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) is the lead Public Health Service agency addressing human health concerns and risks in communities near hazardous waste sites or other sources of environmental contamination. ATSDR has developed a research agenda that incorporates a wide range of input from governmental partners, professional associations, universities, non-governmental organizations, affected citizens, community groups, and American Indian Tribes. Six focus areas were identified through this collaborative effort: Exposure Assessment; Chemical Mixtures; Susceptible Populations; Communities and Native American Tribes; Evaluation and Surveillance of Health Effects; and Health Promotion and Intervention.

The proposed ATSDR Research Agenda will assist in the Agency's critical mission to reduce and prevent exposures and adverse health outcomes from exposure to hazardous substances. The proposed research agenda will also support the Agency's goals of identifying people at health risk and evaluating relationships between hazardous substances and human health.

This draft Research Agenda is being made available so that the Agency can benefit from public review and input before finalizing the Agenda. This Federal Register notice announces that ATSDR's draft Research Agenda 2002-2010 is available for public comment.
