Model Predicts PAH Levels in Important Tribal Food Source
Research Brief - July 2019
A sediment passive sampling model can be used to accurately predict the concentration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in butter clams, according to a recent Superfund Research Program (SRP) study. Led by Kim Anderson, Ph.D., of the Oregon State University (OSU) SRP Center, the research team worked closely with tribal leaders to better predict PAH levels in butter clams while having a minimal impact on this important resource.
SRP Centers Respond to Hurricane Harvey
SRP News Page - October 2017
Only days after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas on Aug. 25, researchers from Superfund Research Program (SRP) Centers at Texas A&M University and Oregon State University (OSU) began working to better understand the potential environmental hazards after the disaster.
Hurricane responses build on community connections
Environmental Factor - October 2017
NIEHS resources are playing a vital role in helping protect health in the aftermath of the August and September hurricanes, and they will help reduce environmental health impacts of future disasters.
Silicone wristbands facilitate exposome study
Environmental Factor - April 2014
As the environmental health science field strives to better understand the complexity of personal chemical exposures, NIEHS-funded researchers at the Oregon State University (OSU) Superfund Research Program (SRP) led by Kim Anderson, Ph.D., have developed a simple wristband and extraction method that can test exposure to 1,200 chemicals.
