  • Plant Testing Informs Safe Community Gardening Practices
    SRP News Page - March 2020
    In a new NIEHS-funded study, SRP Center researchers revealed elevated levels of heavy metals and arsenic in a local community garden grown on a Brownfields site. By installing raised garden beds on the site, they found that they could grow fruits and vegetables that did not accumulate contaminants.
  • Identifying Mechanisms for Regulating Gas Exchange in Plants
    Research Brief - August 2016
    Superfund Research Program (SRP) researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) are identifying important mechanisms that plants use to respond to changes in the environment. They recently discovered molecular mechanisms that enhance the activity of proteins essential to closing stomata, or pores found on the surface of leaves, in response to environmental stressors.
  • SRP Scientists Cited Among the World's Most Influential Scientific Minds
    SRP News Page - February 2016
    Eight Superfund Research Program scientists are among the 2015 listing of The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds, an annual compendium of Highly Cited Researchers by Thomson Reuters, a multinational mass-media and information company.
  • SRP Investigator Elected to National Academy of Sciences
    SRP News Page - May 2015
    In recognition of his outstanding contributions to research, Julian Schroeder, Ph.D., was elected to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in April 2015.
