Superfund Research Program
Final Progress Reports
Year: 2017 2005
Specific Aim 1: Foster strong interdisciplinary interactions and high productivity of the research projects and cores.
To achieve this aim, Rebecca Fry, Ph.D., and Michael Aitken, Ph.D., have overseen all progress of the research Projects and Cores, coordinating activities through monthly meetings where project leaders and trainees present their scientific progress. The Executive Committee met to discuss the Summary Statement from their competitive renewal application, as well as the request for supplemental funds to complete the dissertation research of the Ph.D. student SRP trainees.
Specific Aim 2: Manage the fiscal resources of the program.
Fry and Aitken hold monthly meetings and receive monthly updates on the budget expenditures from the fiscal staff in the department of Environmental Science and Engineering (ESE). The staff includes Doris Dworschak, the new fiscal manager. Pamela Mathews assists the SRP researchers with travel reimbursements, maintains records of their monthly meetings, and helps to coordinate the meeting of the External Advisory Committee.
