Section 1
1.2 Selection of Panelists

ATSDR identified candidates for the expert panel by reviewing the scientific literature in the field of hair analysis, researching professional organizations, and consulting with known experts within research institutes and other academic centers. The agency sought individuals who were experienced in the field of hair analysis and its interpretation for hazardous substances released to the environment.

To help ensure that a broad range of views was brought to the table, the agency sought individuals possessing a range of experience, interest, and expertise in the field of hair analysis. Potential candidates were ranked based on their level of technical expertise (i.e., either high, medium, or low) in each of the following categories:

  • Hair analysis research
  • Laboratory analysis
  • Pediatric medicine
  • Occupational medicine
  • Forensic medicine
  • Exposure assessment

Based on these criteria, ATSDR selected seven panelists, each of whom had expertise in one or more of the categories listed above. The collective expertise of the panel covered all categories, and individuals on the panel represented state and federal government, academia, and private practice.

Appendix A lists the names and affiliations of the panelists who participated in the meeting as well as a brief biographical sketch of each of the panelists.
