Chensheng (Alex) Lu

Dr Lu was a panelist for the Forum’s discussion on Pesticides and Food.

Alex Lu’s primary research is to use variety of biomarkers for assessing human exposures to environmental chemicals in order to facilitate the identification of risk factors, as well as the formation of hypotheses for potential health effects.  One of his current research projects is to integrate exposure biomarkers, physiologically based pharmacokinetic model and cumulative risk assessment tools for quantifying children’s longitudinal exposure to pesticides via dietary intakes, and its risks by comparing to benchmark doses used by the regulatory agencies.  He is also interested in developing the protein adduct-base biomarker to assess the health effects from exposures to organophospate pesticides.
