Update as of September 2022:
BioMedware has received a notice of award that its research in creating accurate models of environmental exposure will continue with payment of the second and last tranche of grant funds of $868,000 from the National Institute of Environmental Health.
Accurate models of exposure are critical to understanding the causal relationships between the environment and health outcomes. Yet, these important data can be difficult to collect, take many forms, and be collected at different sampling densities and spatial supports. This project will provide desktop geostatistical software for the analysis of multivariate environmental exposure and health data. BioMedware Chief Scientist, Pierre Goovaerts, Ph.D., is the Principal Investigator and will lead the team in the statistical method development and software production.
- This project builds on a Phase I award of $225K, also from the NIEHS, awarded in May of 2020.
