  • CHEAR
    • Note: The Children's Health Exposure Analysis Resource, CHEAR, seeks to advance understanding about how the environment impacts children's health and development by providing children's health researchers access to state of the art laboratory analysis of environmental exposures and data analysis consultation at no cost to the investigator. CHEAR is designed to expand the range of environmental exposures assessed in NIH-funded children's health studies. CHEAR also provides expert consultation on study design, feasibility, and analysis. The exposures measured by CHEAR will cover the breadth of the exposome through both large scale targeted and untargeted analysis. (From NIEHS)
