The Texas A&M SBRP Project supports graduate students and postdoctoral trainees from multiple Departments and Units within Texas A&M University (TAMU) and the Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC). Trainees are associated with the Departments or Units of their mentors and these include:

  • the College of Engineering (Department of Civil Engineering)
  • Institute for Biosciences and Technology (TAMHSC)
  • College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology and Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences)
  • College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics and School of Rural Public Health)
  • TAMHSC, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health

Students must satisfy the research and academic requirements of their respective Departments or Units and participate in activities of the SRBP and the Interdisciplinary Faculty of Toxicology. These activities include both scientific enrichment and specialized courses with relevance to Superfund research which include VIBS 610 - Basic Environmental Toxicology and VIBS 605 - Chemical Hazard Assessment. The SBRP students continue to participate in quarterly meetings with the EPA Science Advisory Board in Dallas. Typically, three to four students travel with at least two project investigators to meet with EPA. During the meeting, each student has an opportunity to present their research progress to the EPA, and the EPA provides feedback on relevance to their current mission. SBRP students also participate in national meetings sponsored by the Society of Toxicology, the Endocrine Society, the American Chemical Society, the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, and the Annual NIEHS SBRP meeting.
