Superfund Research Program

Core Laboratory

Project Leader: Arthur L. Lafleur
Grant Number: P42ES004675
Funding Period: 1995 - 2000

Project Summary (1995-2000)

The core laboratory is the chemical analysis arm of the Center for Environmental Health Sciences. It is a central resource in analytical chemistry for Superfund project investigators, providing them with analytical expertise, training, and access to analytical instrumentation. A major CEHS goal is to foster collaborative research among engineers, genetic toxicologists, analytical chemists, and other investigators in order to solve important problems in human health effects research. The core laboratory, incorporating facilities for both organic and inorganic (employing Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis or INAA) analysis, is an important resource in making this research collaboration come to fruition.
