Progress Reports

Year:   2018  2017  2016  2015  2014  2013  2012  2011  2010  2009  2008  2007  2006  2005  2004 

Education is a life-long process and Raina M. Maier and her researchers encourage their students to seek out new challenges and activities to enrich their educational experience, whether the students are at the undergraduate, graduate, or post-doctoral level. This philosophy has engendered a large group of successful Trainees who continue to express that they appreciate that the University of Arizona (UA) SRP provides opportunities to:

  1. to present at the researchers' Colloquium as well as at local and national meetings;
  2. engage in working with communities that are impacted by proximity to contamination;
  3. meet and work with mining industry stakeholders to understand health, safety, and environmental issues from their perspective and to develop innovative solutions to the challenges that industry faces;
  4. work with cutting edge scientists on undergraduate, thesis, dissertation and post-doctoral research;
  5. develop writing skills by writing manuscripts, applying for scholarships, and in some cases write grants or reports.

Maier and her researchers' most popular activity continues to be participation of Trainees in a research translation or community engagement activity. The success of the Training Core in meeting the objectives is best illustrated by the researchers continuing track record of placement of UA SRP graduates in positions that have direct impact on human and environmental health.
