The IMAGE project – Ireland’s bioMonitoring Assessment of Glyphosate Exposures

Researchers at NUIG Galway seek volunteers to participate in the first Irish study to investigate environmental exposure to glyphosate among Irish families

The IMAGE project – Ireland’s bioMonitoring Assessment of Glyphosate Exposures – will conduct an environmental assessment of exposures to glyphosate among the Irish population using human biomonitoring.

Researchers are recruiting 100 Irish families (50 non-farm families and 50 farm families) to participate in this study. Glyphosate will be measured in urine, and the researchers will collect and analyse urine samples from each family, two parents and one child aged between 6–17 years. Participants will also be asked to complete a questionnaire to collect data on diet and lifestyle. For full details click HERE.
