EPA Awards Almost $11 Million to Advance Chemical Safety Research

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced nearly $11 million in grants to eight universities through EPA’s Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program. These grants will help the universities develop fast and effective methods to test chemicals’ toxicity to people and the environment. The grantees will focus on developing methods and models to predict how exposure to environmental and synthetic (man-made) chemicals and chemical mixtures may harm the public.
