Superfund Research Program
The Training Core implement the activities planned to add a layer of interdisciplinary training to the regular disciplinary training of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who are part of the Superfund Research Program. Columbia SRP Trainees are expected to attend the Columbia SPR monthly seminar series the online journal clubs, create posts and media content for the program website and social media posts, participate in short-term courses and participate in outreach activities for the general public with the RTC and CEC. Trainees presented two online arsenic journal clubs that were broadcast via webinar and that were attended by over 30 remote participants. In May the project team sponsored a third annual Trainees Speed Talk, where each trainee gives a five-minute presentation summarizing their work over the past year. Two trainees gave oral presentations at the 2019 annual SRP meeting in Seattle, one presented at a display table and six gave poster presentations.
