AN EFFECTIVE PLATFORM BETWEEN ACADEMIA, POLICY-MAKERS AND THE PUBLIC
The Intersectoral Centre for Endocrine Disruptor Analysis (ICEDA) is a research network dedicated to inform, assist and serve as a resource for academia, government authorities, non-profit organizations, the industry as well as the Canadian population, to identify, recognize, quantify and manage endocrine disruptors. ICEDA also promotes intersectoral collaborations and encourages the sharing and exchange of data and methodologies.
Based at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), this interdisciplinary research network brings together renowned scientists with complementary interests and skills.
ICEDA'S RESEARCH COVERS THE FOLLOWING AREAS
|Environmental and Animal Health||Analytical Chemistry|
|Water Treatment||Environmental Policies|
This research network has more than 100 members in Canada and internationally. This strong expertise makes ICEDA unique in Canada and will enable it to work with the provincial and federal governments to provide the population with informed responses regarding the risks associated with endocrine disruptors in order to better protect future generations. Thus, ICEDA is able to identify endocrine disruptors and analyze their presence in the environment and their effects on human and animal health.
