  • Early SRP Collaboration Guides Potential Treatment Options for Disorders of the Eye
    SRP News Page - August 2018
    Researchers are one step closer to determining how to prevent blindness from occurring in mice with macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, two diseases that affect the eye. This work stems from a collaboration dating back nearly 20 years between SRP-funded researchers Bruce Hammock, Ph.D., from the University of California, Davis, and Bernhard Hennig, Ph.D., from the University of Kentucky.
  • SRP Grantee Presents NIEHS Seminar on Clinical Intervention for Pain
    SRP News Page - April 2018
    Renowned scientist and Superfund Research Program (SRP) grantee Bruce Hammock, Ph.D., was invited to present the Immunity, Inflammation, and Disease Laboratory Special Seminar at NIEHS on March 28, 2018. Hammock's talk focused on neuropathic pain, which is caused by damage or disease affecting the body's sensory system, and how findings from his lab are being translated into clinical interventions.
  • Risk e-Learning Web Seminar Series on Analytical Tools and Methods a Big Success
    SRP News Page - July 2017
    In a spring 2017 three-part Risk e-Learning Web seminar series titled 'Analytical Tools and Methods,' the Superfund Research Program (SRP) highlighted groundbreaking chemical detection, measurement, and fate and transport modeling techniques developed by grantees. In total, this series attracted 1,209 live participants, 6,543 online archive views, 1,419 audio podcast downloads, and 14,596 video podcast downloads.
  • FDA ban on antibacterials in soaps informed by SRP research
    Environmental Factor - October 2016
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a rule Sept. 2 banning 19 antibacterial chemicals as ingredients in over-the-counter (OTC) antibacterial hand and body washes. Development of the final rule was informed by research that included several studies from scientists supported by the NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP).
  • Hammock recognized with first McGiff Memorial Award
    Environmental Factor - April 2016
    NIEHS grantee Bruce Hammock, Ph.D., a toxicologist and entomologist at the University of California, Davis (UCD), is the first recipient of the John C. McGiff Memorial Award for Contributions to Eicosanoid Research. 
  • UC Davis Researchers Find Key Mechanism that Causes Neuropathic Pain
    SRP News Page - July 2015
    Scientists at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) have identified a key mechanism in neuropathic pain. The discovery could eventually benefit millions of patients with chronic pain from trauma, diabetes, shingles, multiple sclerosis, or other conditions that cause nerve damage.
  • If Cells Could Talk, What Would They Tell Us About Environmental Exposures?
    SRP News Page - September 2014
    In a two-part web-based seminar, researchers from the University of Arizona (UA) and the University of California (UC) Davis Superfund Research Program (SRP) Centers described how they use cell methods to study exposure to toxic chemicals in the environment, including dioxin-like compounds and nanoparticles.
  • Applying SRP Tools to Detect Environmental Contaminants in California
    SRP News Page - August 2014
    A Superfund Research Program (SRP) grantee presentation has shown how biochemical tests can be shared. University of California, Davis (UC Davis) SRP project leader Shirley Gee explained how the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) can apply UC Davis immunoassay technologies to detect environmental chemicals.
  • Translating research into products to improve public health
    Environmental Factor - June 2014
    What do a new eco-friendly cleanup chemical, a mercury-sensing device, and pathogen-detection technology have in common? They are all products of small business startups spun out of NIEHS-funded basic research, recognized for innovation.
  • Novel Pathway Involved in Neurodevelopmental Toxicity of PCBs
    Research Brief - March 2014
    Non-dioxin-like (NDL) polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are widespread environmental contaminants previously associated with neurological disorders in children. In a new study funded in part by the University of California UC), researchers demonstrated a novel mechanism of PCB developmental neurotoxicity. 
  • SRP grantee receives prestigious Brodie Award
    Environmental Factor - March 2014
    Bruce Hammock, Ph.D., a longtime NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) grantee, was honored by the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) with the biennial Bernard B. Brodie Award in Drug Metabolism.
