Final Progress Reports

Year:   2005 

Under the leadership of Paul Bishop and Alvaro Puga, the University of Cincinnati SBRP put together an integrative, product-producing competitive renewal for five more years of research.  The focus on the development of innovative sensors for the detection of low-level Superfund contaminants in mixed media was especially exciting, as was the recruitment of high quality investigators to the program. 


Input from the Administrative Core encouraged the Analytical Core to write a grant supplement to detect the degradation products of the chemical warfare agents Soman, Sarin, and VX.  This is the second year in a row that UC SBRP has been awarded supplements to ES04908 based on merit-reviewed applications. 


In order to facilitate communication between the UC scientists, personnel, and other stakeholders, the Administrative Core developed a newsletter UC Superfund Shorts.  The goal is to produce four pages of content every two or three months.  The first issue was well received by the External Advisory Board members, as well as other UC scientists.  Several non-SBRP members contacted the Administrative Core in order to discuss potential collaborations, based on the newsletter content. 


Two new members were added to the External Advisory Board, in order to better serve the Superfund stakeholders.   Our new members are:


Randall P. Born

Cincergy Power Generation Services


Hugh J. Campbell Jr.



Our continuing members are:


Henry H. Tabak

USEPA Facilities


Dr. Robert H. Tukey

University of California, San Diego

Two UC Students, Alberto Uribe-Jongbloed and Kevin Kubachak, were nominated to present their findings at the Annual Superfund Meeting.
