Exposure Biology Research Group

The Exposure Biology Research Group (EBRG), directed by Dr. Michael McClean, is an interdisciplinary research group in the department of Environmental Health at the Boston University School of Public Health. Our primary research focus is the use of biological markers to assess environmental and occupational exposures via multiple pathways with respect to exposure-related disease.

Dr. McClean and EBRG personnel are currently collaborating on the following projects:

The EBRG works within the 3,500 square foot Environmental Health Laboratory, shared by Dr. McClean and three other faculty members in the department of Environmental Health. Our laboratory is equipped with a range of direct reading field instruments (Innov-X Portable XRF Analyzer, TSI Sidepaks, personal air sampling pumps, etc.) as well as equipment necessary to collect, process and store environmental and biological samples in support of extensive field investigations. Several of the research staff are trained and experienced phlebotomists.
