Progress Reports

Year:   2019  2018  2017  2016  2015  2014  2013  2012  2011  2010  2009  2008  2007  2006  2005  2004 

The UA SBRP Training Core partially supports five graduate students ($11,000K/yr) placed in five of the research projects. To stimulate interaction between the UA SBRP Biomedical and Environmental Science and Engineering projects and students, The Training Core holds a monthly SBRP Colloquium. Each Colloquium begins with brief highlights of successes and future possibilities for leveraging UA SBRP research. The Training Core student or outside speaker is then introduced and presents a 30 minute seminar concerning their research. Invited speakers for this year have included a water law lawyer, technology transfer representative, and airborne dust specialist. The presentation is followed by a lively discussion that draws on perspectives and expertise from diverse disciplines in Biomedical, Engineering, and Environmental Sciences. The exposure to these different disciplines benefits both students and faculty by increasing their awareness of the breadth and depth of disciplines needed to address real environmental hazardous waste problems.

The success of The Training Core is indicated by the placement of participating students in academic positions in leading institutions, or joining industry or government in positions that directly affect health, water and environmental quality.
