The November 13 seminar, held on the Rutgers University campus, was organized in cooperation with the International Society of Exposure Science Tri-State Chapter.
About 24 people from academia and industry attended the meeting, according to SRA-Metro president Rao Kolluru. The meeting was the first such joint meeting in recent history. Presentation topics included consumer nanoparticle exposure (Gediminas Mainelis, Rutgers); simulating epidemics (Ashley DeNegre, also from Rutgers); building resilient communities (Jennifer Gonzalez, Louis Berger Group); and climate change and public health (Jaime Madrigano, Rutgers).
SRA-Metro encompasses the metropolitan New York-New Jersey-Connecticut region.
