About PFAS research projects

A description of sub-projects involved with living PFAS

Sub-projects

Short overviews are presented below – for more details and results go to the project pages.

1. An umbrella review

Key questions: What scientific review papers have been published on PFAS in humans, animals and the environment? Which of those research areas still need work? And which ones have sufficiently been researched?

Type of review: (Umbrella review & living systematic map of review literature) [link to Data synthesis methods page]

Short project description: In this project we will collect all available review studies on PFAS in the environment, animals and people. We will present and visualize the types of reviews that have been performed and the areas of PFAS research that have been reviewed.

Status: Protocol submitted for publication.

2. Burdens in wildlife

Key questions: What scientific papers have been published on the burdens of PFAS in wildlife? What areas of PFAS in wildlife have been sufficiently researched and which areas need more work?

Type of review: Living systematic map of primary literature

Short project description: In this project we will collect all available scientific studies that investigate PFAS burdens in wildlife. Our review will show gaps and gluts in the literature.

Status: Protocol published as Profiling research on PFAS in wildlife in Ecological Solutions and Evidence.

3. Cooking

Key question: Can you reduce the PFAS concentration in seafood and fish products through cooking?

Type of review: Meta-analysis

Short project description: In this project we will investigate if different types of cooking can reduce the concentration of PFAS in seafood and fish products and therefore make them safer for consumption.

Status: Preprint available on EcoEvoRxiv!
