EDMaRC is involved in HBM4EU

Objective: Human biomonitoring for EU (HBM4EU) is a joint effort of 26 European countries and the European Commission with the overarching goal of generating knowledge to inform the safe management of chemicals and so to protect human health. Human biomonitoring will also be used to understand human exposure to chemicals and resulting health impacts.

Description:  EDMaRC’s participation in HBM4EU involves our expertise in biomonitoring of non-persistent chemicals such as phthalates and bisphenols as well as availability of biobanked samples from our well-characterised populationstudies. Thus, we are involved in several of the HBM4EU workpackages.

Outcomes: To meet the future challenge into human biomonitoring, new analytical methods for a range of hot-topic environmental chemicals have been developed and validated. Therefore beside our previous battery of methods on well-known phthalate metabolites, simple environmental phenols, parabens and UV filters, we are now also able to analyse other suspected endocrine disrupting chemicals such as paracetamol and other aniline metabolites and new substitutes for phthalates (metabolites of DiNCH and DEHTP) and  bisphenol-A (BPS, BPF and other bisphenol analogues).
HBM4EU is co-funded by Horizon 2020 and will be running for 5 years from 2017-2021. More information about HBM4EU can be found here.
