State of New Jersey Biomonitoring Commission

The State of New Jersey Biomonitoring Commission was established in 2014 to provide scientific guidance and oversight for state biomonitoring activities, to make recommendations on project design and implementation, and to synchronize state agencies’ priorities.  Its membership comprises experts with diverse backgrounds representing public health agencies, scientific authorities, clinical institutions, academia, environmental protection entities, and public advocacy groups.

The Commission’s mandate is to support the Biomonitoring Program throughout the course of the cooperative agreement and to maintain oversight of NJ biomonitoring activities beyond the life of the agreement.  Priorities of the Commission include public health benefits to New Jersey citizens, participant safety, and scientific integrity in all undertakings.
