The AESOP Study: Airborne Exposures to Semi-volatile Organic Pollutants Project has had to put a hold on recruitment and enrollment of new participants in the current grant period due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AESOP Study team has instead focused its efforts on five major activities:

  • Organizing, cataloguing, and archiving all subject data forms and questionnaires including consent forms, assent forms, home visit forms, cash payment receipts, activity logs, and questionnaires for demographics, dietary history, local fish consumption, and occupational history.
  • Re-inventorying and re-organizing 5200 serum samples, 5500 erythrocyte fraction samples, 200 whole blood samples, 400 urine samples, 4200 air samples, and 450 surficial and core soil samples.
  • Report back of exposure data to study participants and aggregated data to the community.
  • Analysis and publication of AESOP Study data and comparable NHANES data.
  • Recruitment of a new community school district for study in this new grant cycle. They have compiled data on the dates of construction, renovation, and additions for 30 schools they are considering for working in when they can resume participant contact.

The team plans to resume in-person contact with AESOP Study participants as soon as it is safe to do so.
