Superfund Research Program (SRP) Progress in Research webinar  series this   Monday, October 1 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT!

There is still time to register for the final session of the  Superfund Research Program (SRP) Progress in Research webinar  series this   Monday, October 1 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT!

 
The webinar series highlights recently-awarded (2017) SRP Centers and is free and is open to the public. During each webinar, Centers provide a 20-minute overview of the research and activities underway, followed by an open question and answer session. This format is meant to facilitate a dialogue between Center researchers and stakeholders early in the stages of research progress.
 
Session IV – Boston University, Texas A&M University, and University of California, Davis
October 1, 2018 • 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT
  • The Boston University SRP Center explores the long-term impacts of early life exposure to Superfund chemicals in humans and wildlife. Their work focuses on contaminants, including polychlorinated biphenyls and tetrachloroethylene, found in and around the New Bedford Harbor Superfund site and in the drinking water of nearby communities.
  • The Texas A&M University SRP Center focuses on developing comprehensive tools and models for addressing exposure to mixtures during emergency-related environmental contamination events. Through projects derived from a case study of the Galveston Bay area, the researchers are evaluating the complexities of hazardous chemical exposures, potential adverse health impacts, and potential hazards of exposures to complex mixtures.
  • The University of California, Davis SRP Center uses integrated chromatographic, biosensor, and cell-based technologies to detect and identify contaminants and develop innovative approaches for bioremediation. The Center is expanding the use of transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and integrated bioinformatics technologies to discover new mechanisms of action of hazardous materials and biological markers for their action and to connect hazardous substance exposures to organism-level effects.
 
If you are not available during the webinar but are interested in hearing about the excellent work going on at these Centers, we encourage you to register so you will be notified when the archive is available.
If you were not able to attend the previous sessions, check out the following pages to view the archives:
 
More information is also available on the SRP Progress in Research website. We encourage you to invite your colleagues, and we hope you can make it!
 
Best regards,
