The Neonicotinoid View: Pesticide Exposure and Health Risk

  Broadcast in Environment

Call in to speak with the host

(917) 932-1068

In this special series called “The Neonicotinoid View”, host, June Stoyer, will be joined by special guest host, Tom Theobald to talk to Dr. Chensheng (Alex) Lu, Associate Professor of Environmental Exposure Biology at Harvard, about his research on honeybees and neonicotinoids.

Dr. Lu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. Dr. Lu's primary research interest is in the area of pesticide exposure and health risk assessment using biological monitoring approach. Dr. Lu is developing a research program integrating novel exposure assessment tools, physiologically-base pharmacokinetic models and cumulative risk assessment models.

Dr. Lu's current research projects include:

  1. exploring the feasibility of assessing pesticide exposure using saliva as a biomarker,
  2. assessing children's aggregate pesticide exposures in a longitudinal manner,
  3. investigation the variation of dietary consumption patterns and the corresponding pesticide exposure, and
  4. estimating absorbed pesticide dose in children and farm worker population using Exposure-Related Dose Estimating Model. Dr. Lu currently serves as an ad hoc member on the US EPA Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Scientific Advisory Panel, and an ad hoc member on the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) grant peer-review panel. Stay tuned!
