The Superfund Research Program (SRP) was created within the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in under the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). The SRP is a university-based research program that supports the national Superfund program by addressing a wide variety of scientific concerns.

The SRP has a broad mandate including. The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of created the SRP within the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) to provide a broad university-based research program to address scientific uncertainties facing the national Superfund program.

The NIEHS Hazardous Substance Basic Research and Training Program (Superfund Research Program [SRP]) provides practical, scientific solutions to protect health, the environment, and communities. As part of NIEHS, an Institute of the National Institutes of Health, SRP works to learn more about ways to protect the public from exposure to hazardous substances, such as industrial solvents, arsenic.

The mission of the Superfund Basic Research Program is to characterize human health and ecological risks associated with neurotoxic chemicals that occur at Superfund hazardous waste sites, and to develop methods to remediate exposures to these agents.

Superfund Fact Book Summary The Superfund program is the principal federal effort for cleaning up hazardous waste sites and protecting public health and the environment from releases of hazardous substances. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of (CERCLA) established the program, and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of.

Visualizing the context in which research occurs is a difficult exercise without lived experience. On Octo the Boekelheide lab hosted, this informal tour and seminar was intended to give participants a glimpse into the culture and context of toxicology research, resulting in a more nuanced perception of work conducted under the umbrella of the Brown Superfund Research Program.

Researchers at the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET), Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, have been awarded a $10 million grant from the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) over the next four years to study asbestos exposure pathways that lead to asbestos-related diseases.

The Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program promoted the development, commercialization, and implementation of innovative hazardous waste treatment technologies for 20 years.

SITE offered a mechanism for conducting joint technology demonstration and evaluation projects at hazardous waste sites involving the private sector, EPA, and other federal and state agencies. The University of Kentucky Superfund Research Center (UK-SRC) strives to reduce the negative health and environmental impacts of chlorinated organic compounds found at Superfund sites across both the Commonwealth and the U.S.
