EPA’s Risk Assessment Forum Cumulative Risk Assessment (CRA) Technical Panel is currently developing guidelines on CRA and NCER is funding extramural research to advance the science further and introduce additional strategies for examining combinations of chemical, physical and biological stressors while factoring in population vulnerabilities.

Invited speakers will present on a wide range of cumulative risk topics to inform participants about the development of the Agency’s CRA Guidelines.
