The Strategy describes the current ORD research program on children's health and its relation to research in other federal agencies, descriptions of which were obtained from publically-available sources. It outlines research program directions aimed at development of data to reduce uncertainties in risk assessment, risk assessment methods and models, new approaches to data collection, and risk prevention/reduction methods. The Strategy encompasses research performed by EPA intramural scientists and research supported through ORD's Science to Achieve Results (STAR) extramural grants program and cooperative agreements between ORD laboratories and other research institutions.
The Strategy has been reviewed internally in ORD. An External Peer Review is scheduled for November 9 and 10, 1999, in Washington DC.
