Superfund Research Program 2013 Annual Meeting
Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center-October 15-17, 2013- Baton Rouge, Louisiana
The Superfund Research Program (SRP) supports multidisciplinary research to address human and environmental health challenges related to Superfund and other hazardous waste sites. The SRP annual meeting brings together researchers, trainees, and administrators supported by the program, representatives from partner agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), and other interested individuals to discuss new research, technology, communication, and community engagement in critical areas related to the SRP mission. In addition, SRP grantees and trainees will have many opportunities for networking with SRP trainee alumni, SRP staff (program, review, management), and other SRP Center Directors and Project/Core Leaders.
At the main meeting, October 16th and 17th, (SRP Main Meeting Agenda) participants will share research findings and implications, with sessions focusing on four main topics: Halogenated Pollutants, Emerging Contaminants and Pollutant Mixtures, Developmental and Other Human Health Effects, and Arsenic and Heavy Metals. On the evening of October 16th, graduate students will present their research in a poster competition and interact with other SRP scientists. A Thursday morning poster session will feature other scientific, research translation, and community engagement projects. The meeting will close with presentations by the Karen Wetterhahn Award winner, and two K.C. Donnelly Externship Award winners and the announcement of graduate poster winners.
