Current and upcoming research to address complex environmental health issues related to hazardous contaminants, climate-related disasters, and more, headlined the recent NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) Progress in Research webinar series. Over the course of four sessions in April and May, the series highlighted 11 new and renewed SRP multiproject centers funded in 2022.

Each webinar drew an average of 500 registrants from academia, industry, federal and state agencies, and community groups.

“These webinars help us facilitate a dialogue between the researchers, field practitioners, and stakeholders early in the stages of research progress, so these new projects are on a trajectory for successful technology transfer and application by end users,” said SRP Acting Director Michelle Heacock, Ph.D., during opening remarks.
