Dr. Angela Perez, Center for Toxicology and Environmental Health (CTEH) will present an overview of the state of the science related to adverse human health effects of PFAS exposure. Dr. Perez will summarize epidemiological evidence of cholesterol modulation in occupational and community-based studies and will discuss disparities in data interpretation between the study types.

Dr. Carmen Messerlian, Harvard University School of Public Health will summarize the experimental and human evidence on the immunotoxic effects of PFAS exposure.
