In September 2007, the University of California announced that it had been awarded a $4.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the biological effects of exposure to benzene and other substances. In particular, the study will map out adducts – compounds produced by the body when proteins react with chemicals – and their relationship to exposure to benzene found in gasoline, cigarettes and other sources. The study will be conducted by a newly created Center for Exposure Biology at the UC Berkeley campus.
