News Items List

  • Three-Dimensional Cell Model Enhances DNA Damage Testing
    Research Brief - June 2020
    Superfund Research Program (SRP) Center scientists developed a new platform, known as the SpheroidChip analysis method, to rapidly test for DNA damage in three-dimensional (3D) cell models. Development was led by Bevin Engelward, Sc.D., at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  • New quick screen for different types of DNA damage
    Paper of the Month - February 2020
    NIEHS grantees developed a new screening method that can detect a broad range of DNA damage in cells. According to the authors, this new method fills a gap in DNA damage testing and could make chemical safety testing faster, easier, and more accurate.
  • Nanotube Sensor Detects Nitrosamines in Air
    Research Brief - December 2019
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology Superfund Research Program researchers have developed a sensitive and inexpensive carbon nanotube-based sensor that can measure N-nitrosamines in air.
  • New tool rapidly evaluates chemical effects on cells
    Paper of the Month - April 2019
    NIEHS grantees have developed a new toxicity test that can measure the effects of chemicals on cell survival. The tool is much faster than the gold standard cell survival tool and more sensitive than other rapid cell toxicity tests.
  • SRP Grantees Develop a Better Way to Measure Cell Survival
    SRP News Page - March 2019
    Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Superfund Research Program (SRP) Center recently developed a new test that rapidly measures the effect of different chemicals on cell survival. Measuring cell survival is critical for screening potentially toxic chemicals and protecting human health. The technology was developed as part of an NIEHS small business grant, with partial funding from the MIT SRP Center.
  • Eight Northeast SRP Centers Convene at Regional Meeting
    SRP News Page - April 2018
    The Northeast Superfund Research Program (SRP) Meeting brought together eight SRP Centers to discuss collaborations and network. Held in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, on March 26 - 27, the meeting included scientific presentations and poster sessions.
