Abstract

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) prioritizes topics for reproductive research in order to allocate limited resources to the most important issues. In the past, we have relied on an informal network including our own project officers, toxicologists, and the public to nominate chemicals to study. Setting priorities has consisted of the evaluation of research iseas by criteria such as the chemical's probable toxicity and the extent of exposure to the chemical in the workplace. NIOSH researchers are developing a system for evaluating large databases of toxicologic and occupational exposure information to identify potential reproductive toxins. When this system is operational it will provide a systematic way to nominate chemicals for study.
