The theme for this 30th Annual Meeting of SRP Centers will be “Fundamental Research for Innovation and Health”. A major objective of the meeting will be to identify how collaboration across disciplines within SRP centers, as well as with different SRP centers, and external partners has generated innovation in environmental health science research. There will be an emphasis on how fundamental research has stimulated knowledge translation and training activities. In addition, we hope to generate discussions on how best to foster innovative research activities related to how environmental chemicals modulate genetic, epigenetic, and psychosocial factors to affect the health of individuals living or working near SRP sites. Finally, the ability to translate findings from specific superfund sites to other potentially affected populations will be discussed.
The NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) supports multidisciplinary research to address human and environmental health challenges related to Superfund and other hazardous waste sites. Learn more by visiting their website.
