The GenX Exposure Study is assessing human exposure to GenX and related chemicals in people living in the Lower Cape Fear River Basin. With funding from the Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), CHHE researchers from North Carolina State University and East Carolina University are measuring GenX and other chemicals in blood, urine, and drinking water to understand human exposure to PFAS chemicals and try to respond to community concerns in Fayetteville and Wilmington.
