This chapter discusses the use of biologically based models of exposure and dose in epidemiologic studies. It describes how dose metrics can be used in epidemiologic models and discusses some of the methodologic challenges that arise. Two examples from the published literature illustrate many of the points raised by the chapter.

Keywords:   dosimetry, epidemiologic studies, exposure assessment, biologically based models, dose metrics
