As well as continuing the Center's co-sponsorship of the weekly Integrated Toxicology and Environmental Health Program seminar series, Duke's SRC co-sponsored two highly successful symposia in 2015. In April 2015, The Cancer Exposome: Innovation at the Intersection of Environmental Exposure & Disease Pathways explored the impact of environmental exposures on biological pathways involved in cancer. The Toxicity of Power was held in the fall of 2015 and addressed toxicological issues caused by energy production and highlighted ways to reduce public health impacts. Both events were highlighted in NIEHS's Environmental Factor.

The Training Core continued to fund its summer research training program in which students from a variety of schools come to Duke for eight to ten weeks for placement in the projects and cores of the Center. Last summer, eight trainees were placed. There was a great diversity of students in the program, with several from under-represented minority groups.

The Center also received supplemental funding to provide support for six graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from multiple Superfund Research Centers across the country to attend and participate in the 2015 convention of the International Neurotoxicology Association in Montreal, Canada (June).
