This report provides a brief overview of research funded by 12 grants issued through the Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA) Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program. These grants were all aimed at advancing the state of knowledge concerning childrens exposures to pesticides and the potential adverse effects of these exposures. Childrens pesticide exposures are a major concern to EPA because of extensive evidence that children may be more vulnerable to the effects of pesticide exposures than adults and because childrens exposures to pesticides may be greater than those of adults under typical use scenarios. The grants reviewed in this report address three related topics: Development of improved biomarkers of childrens pesticide exposure; Studies of the basis for childrens vulnerability to pesticides; and Development of improved information relating to the nature and magnitude of childrens pesticide exposures.
