Superfund Research Program
Project Summary (2011-2018)
The Administrative Core has primary responsibility for oversight and guidance of the UNC Superfund Research Program (SRP). This includes the overall planning and coordination of UNC SRP research activities, fostering interdisciplinary interaction, enriching the program through seminars and retreats, scheduling meetings of the Executive Committee and the Internal and External Advisory Committees, as well as fiscal and resource management and planning. The UNC SRP includes seven research projects, a Research Support Core, a Research Translation Core and the Administrative Core. The Administrative Core is led by Dr. Swenberg, Director of the UNC SRP. He is assisted by Professor Nylander-French, Deputy Core Leader, and Ms. Sherril Bowman, Program Manager. The goals of the core are to: foster strong interdisciplinary interactions and high productivity of the research projects and cores; manage the fiscal resources of the program; organize and schedule meetings of the Executive Committee, an annual retreat for all UNC SRP researchers, enrichment seminars and annual meetings of the Internal and External Advisory Committees; work with the Research Translation to maximize communication with the NIEHS, government agencies, communities, the public, and potential users of the technology developed by the research team.
