  • SRP and EPA collaborate to Highlight Technical Support for Communities
    SRP News Page - June 2016
    The Superfund Research Program (SRP) has a strong history of sharing research findings with communities impacted by hazardous waste sites and providing scientific expertise in response to their questions. An interactive session at the annual Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference (TRAC) highlighted successful academic and federal activities to address community concerns.
  • Using Field Data and Numerical Modeling to Assess Vapor Intrusion Risk
    Research Brief - May 2016
    A recent Superfund Research Program (SRP) study reveals that measurements of chemical concentrations in groundwater may not be a good indicator of whether the chemicals are seeping into buildings and contaminating indoor air. The findings provide insight into how an approach incorporating multiple lines of evidence, including soil gas measurements and a 3-D model, can be used to better evaluate exposure risks from vapor intrusion into homes and buildings.
  • Kelly Pennell Receives NSF CAREER Award
    SRP News Page - October 2015
    Kelly Pennell, Ph.D., an University of Kentucky assistant professor and Superfund Research Program (SRP) grantee, was awarded a prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award for her project Vapor Intrusion, Knowledge Brokers, and Environmental Health A Three Dimensional Perspective.
  • SRP network helps parents understand vapor intrusion in schools
    Environmental Factor - March 2015
    NIEHS-funded experts on vapor intrusion joined a meeting Feb. 9 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, to educate communities in two schools located over contaminated groundwater about potential health effects of chemical exposures.
