The NoStra project aims at developing new strategies to improve the assessment of human exposure to fast elimination contaminants, such as non-persistent pesticides, bisphenols, phthalates, and other plastic-associated contaminants.
In order to facilitate the implementation within epidemiological studies based on human cohorts, the approaches are based on non-invasive biological matrices such as urine and hair. The results obtained in this project will help to better design the approaches used for exposure assessment in order to improve the understanding of the adverse effects on health associated with exposure to non-persistent contaminants.
