Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

Human health can be influenced by many environmental factors, including physical, chemical, biological, and radiological contaminants. Among them, exposure to environmental chemicals is a serious ongoing public health issue. Understanding public health risks posed by environmental chemical exposure is complicated. There are many impact factors including population susceptibility, latencies between exposure and disease manifestations, and background environmental exposure. Relationships between environmental exposure and health outcomes can only be established through well-designed epidemiological, toxicological, and clinical studies. Therefore, along with traditional risk assessment, integrating all available types of data, such as traditional toxicology, environmental epidemiology, and the environmental exposome would approach environmental chemical risk assessment from a new lens. There is an immediate need to develop good research associated with the disease risk and toxicity posed by environmental chemical exposure. This Special Issue aims to explore the perspective of environmental chemical risk assessment. We invite researchers to contribute original research and articles as well as review articles in the scope of this Special Issue. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Public health and health impact assessment and environmental epidemiology
  • Environmental risk assessments and management
  • Environmental toxicology
  • Wastewater-based epidemiology
  • Environmental technology for environmental health protection
