Superfund Research Program
Final Progress Reports
The Administrative Core orchestrated the competitive renewal of their Superfund program. It coordinated meetings and grant applications for Arizona-Mexico collaborative training and research culminating in a three-year award from USAID and federal legislation supporting the development of a US-Mexico Binational Center for Environmental Studies and Toxicology. The Core monitored budgets and coordinated budget supplements for additional projects (Arizona-Dartmouth collaboration, arsenic-treated wood, meeting proposals, NIEHS-EPA arsenic leaching at landfills). The Administrative Core reconstructed an external Advisory Board and hosted a meeting with them to guide the direction of their competitive renewal application. The Core initiated pilot projects to develop new areas of research through coordination and distribution of the Technology Demonstration funds for small scale field studies with the Environmental Sciences/Engineering projects. This core coordinated the monthly Colloquium meetings to disseminate research results and promote Program research discussions. Finally, the Core coordinated the submission of all research translation, new items, and reports to NIEHS.
