Project Summary (2010-2014)

The Administrative Core promotes intellectual activities, organization of venues for planning future research through seminars and retreats, and oversight of research and spending. The Core also provides the tools to work with institutions inside and outside of Harvard School of Public Health to leverage the potential of the Superfund Research Program(SRP) to translate the findings of the research and to promote research on mixtures, gene-environment interactions, and the movement of metals in the environment.

The specific aims of the Administrative Core are:

  1. Research. To monitor research progress, coordinate Internal Advisory Committee (Governance Committee) meetings, and foster collaborative research both within the SRP Program and among other Harvard affiliated institutions and collaborative institutions, such as MIT;
  2. Communication. To foster communication between the Harvard SBRP and SBRP programs within EPA Region 1 (Dartmouth, Brown, Boston University) and agencies such as EPA, ATSDR and the Pediatric Environmental Health Subspecialty Units (PEHSUs), and to maintain close communication with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences;
  3. To provide necessary resources and fiscal oversight;
  4. To promote rapid dissemination of significant research findings; and
  5. Compliance. To ensure compliance with NIH requirements for data and resource-sharing and the human and animal institutional review board requirements.
