On March 4, 2020, it was announced that as part of the NIEHS Superfund Research Program, the GenX Exposure Study will continue through the newly developed Center for Environmental and Health Effects of PFAS at North Carolina State University. We will continue to follow the people who have already enrolled, and additionally enroll more people this summer who we will follow for the next five years.
We will update our website as new information is available. If you have any questions, please contact the study at 855-854-2641 or

The purpose of this study is to assess current exposure to GenX and related chemicals in people living in the Lower Cape Fear River Basin. We are measuring GenX and other chemicals in blood, urine, and drinking water to help answer questions for North Carolina residents.
