Abstract

Although numerous government and research organizations in the United States are trying to identify opportunities for collaboration and leveraging study results and plans, there is a general lack of coordination between disciplines that leaves scientists unable to comprehensively answer questions regarding the full impacts of CEC exposures. To enable a science-based approach to understanding this problem before it grows beyond our ability to constrain, we invite the United States government, the public, nongovernmental organizations, and industry leaders to join with scientists in meeting this challenge. In a cause of this magnitude, everyone is a stakeholder.
