FLUOROS aimed to examine the “state of the science” on fluorinated organic compounds in the environment, bringing together members of industry, academia and government.
The symposium program is divided into 6 areas of focus or sessions: Environmental Fate and Transport, Analytical Chemistry and Monitoring, Remediation, Toxicology and Human Health Impacts/Epidemiology, Replacement Chemistries, and Risk Assessment and Policy. Sessions will run consecutively and will feature 2-3 invited speakers followed by a poster session. Invited speakers were distinguished, world experts in their fields and will articulate the current state of knowledge of the “focus area” as well as identifying further research priorities and information gaps.
