SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Research and Development (ORD) and the American Chemistry Council's (ACC) Long-Range Research Initiative (LRI) are interested in issuing joint solicitations for research proposals. A draft document has been developed that sets forth a public process that brings together government and industry to engage the best scientists in the research community to assist in improving the quantity and quality of data for use in human health and ecological risk assessment. Recent discussions have led ORD and ACC to agree to pursue, as a first area of collaboration, a joint request for applications (RFA) in the area of "Novel Approaches for Analysis of Human Exposure Data." The purpose of this meeting is to: (1) Present the draft procedures for the public process of issuing joint RFAs, (2) solicit comment on the proposal, and (3) solicit specific input (e.g., suggested research areas) into the development of a joint RFA on novel approaches for analysis of human exposure data.
