Abstract
EPA's National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA) is a leader in the science of human health and ecological risk assessment, a process used to determine how pollutants or other stressors may impact human health and the environment. NCEA occupies a critical position in EPAs Office of Research and Development (ORD) between researchers in other parts of ORD and outside of EPA who are generating new findings and data and the regulators in EPAs Program Offices and Regions who must make regulatory, enforcement, and remedial action decisions. NCEA prepares technical reports and assessments that integrate and evaluate the most up-to-date research and serve as major elements of the science foundation supporting EPA policies. NCEA also conducts cutting-edge research to develop innovative quantitative risk assessment methods and tools that help extrapolate between experimental data and real-world scenarios, improve our understanding of uncertainties, and facilitate careful weighing of evidence. NCEAs workforce is our strengthits scientists are recognized internationally for their expertise in toxicology, epidemiology, biology, chemistry, and statistics. NCEA scientists serve on many federal government workgroups that are addressing critical environmental challenges and questions.
