Reviews

"There is some suggestions for teaching the exposome, including an outline syllabus for a short course, and Miller's ideas about how the science might move forward over the next five to ten years... Overall I found this a useful introduction to the exposome and well worth reading if you want to better understand this new developing science." --OH-World.org blog, January 2014
