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!
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.
- Session I – Duke University and University of Arizona
- Session II – University of Louisville, University of New Mexico, and University of Washington
- Session III – Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and University of Rhode Island
