Superfund Research Program

Administrative Core - Research Translation

Project Leader: Scott N. Spak
Grant Number: P42ES013661
Funding Period: 2020-2024

Project Summary (2015-2020)

Note: As of the most recent reissue of the Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program Request for Applications (RFA-ES-18-002), research translation in these multiproject center grants is now part of the Administrative Core. The research translation efforts are now facilitated by the Administrative Core and led by the Research Translation Coordinator.

The University of Iowa Superfund Research Program (ISRP) is a highly integrated research center focusing on the sources, exposures, remediation, and toxicities of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) congeners found in air. The ISRP is dedicated to making center research available and accessible in consideration of the SRP research translation objectives:

  • Communication with SRP and SRP staff
  • Partnerships with government agencies
  • Technology transfer
  • Information dissemination to other end-users, with a particular focus on communicating in the manner most appropriate for each audience

The team is continuing successful efforts in research translation, including the biennial International PCB Workshop; social media news feeds; webinars and training workshops; decision-support tools for agencies and organizations managing PCBs in schools; and web applications for dissemination of research findings. In addition, the team is promoting new technology transfer initiatives and developing new technology and platforms that maximize bidirectional communication. The outcome of the ISRP’s highly integrated structure and approach has been innovative research that deepens understanding of PCBs as Superfund hazardous substances.
