A global platform for identifying emerging chemical threats (2019–2023)

Abstract:
Rapid identification of chemical exposures is key to managing chemical threats and associated risks. This project aims to develop an automated early warning social network to systematically detect newly identified emerging chemical threats. Global collaboration and sharing of archived high-resolution mass spectrometry data through open/social platforms will revolutionise data processing and chemical threat identification. This project will result in a new and cost-effective approach for the identification, tracking and prioritisation of emerging chemical threats and address key national and global health risks. The outcomes include the first spatial and temporal distribution of new emerging chemical threats in Australia.
