Project Summary (2020-2025)

The University of Arizona Superfund Research Program (UA SRP) Administrative Core is the "glue" that holds the many parts of the Center together, making the "whole" of the program greater than the sum of the individual research projects and cores. The Administrative Core integrates the many components of the program to meet the needs of the overall NIEHS Superfund Research Program, UA SRP's stakeholders, and the community. The Administrative Core encompasses both the management aspects and the creative development of the Center. The management component includes the responsibilities for the supervision, direction, planning, and coordination of the UA SRP, as well as communication with stakeholders and financial accountability. The development component involves seeking innovative ways to increase the impact of the Center, including building partnerships within the University of Arizona, with sister SRPs, and with stakeholders (NIEHS, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, state agencies, communities, and the mining industry). The overall goal of the Center is to address the management, remediation, and health effects of environmental pollutants, namely arsenic and other metals, related to the metal mining industry in the U.S. Southwest. The Administrative Core objectives are to:

  1. Manage and coordinate the research projects and support cores to ensure attainment of the Center's proposed research, training, and translational objectives;
  2. Promote the exchange of scientific information at all levels through interaction with NIEHS and stakeholders and the translation of research products to risk assessment, intervention, education, and hazardous waste site management and remediation;
  3. Creatively leverage the Center to expand its research base and ability to test and transfer new exposure assessment, intervention, and remediation technologies; and
  4. Facilitate the UA SRP to serve as a global resource for human and environmental health issues associated with metal mining.
