Superfund Research Program
SRP summer interns Anna Kremer and Kirsten Reid presented their summer research projects in a virtual poster showcase along with interns and trainees from across NIEHS on July 28.
Kremer, a graduate student at Saint Louis University, won first place for her poster titled "An Analysis of Superfund Research Program P42 Grant Recipient Data Management and Sharing Plans." She was recognized for her poster design and ability to communicate her project.
For her internship, Kremer analyzed data management and sharing plans and proposed strategies that can be used to help program staff and SRP researchers align with the new NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing expectations. Kremer was mentored by SRP Health Scientist Administrator Michelle Heacock, Ph.D.
Under the mentorship of SRP Health Scientist Administrator Heather Henry, Ph.D., Reid focused her internship on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. Her poster, titled "The Superfund Research Program: Engaging with Communities and Communicating Risks of PFAS Exposure," described how SRP-funded researchers work closely with affected communities to communicate potential health risks, as well as innovative tools to reduce exposures and protect human health. Reid is a graduate student at Emory University.
