Progress Reports

Year:   2019  2018  2017  2016  2015  2014  2013  2012  2011  2008  2007  2006  2005  2004 

The Training Core provided a wide range of activities to support both cross-disciplinary and individualized training in science, as well as in community engagement, research translation, and ethics and responsible conduct of research. A highlight was a highly successful seminar series and symposia in both spring and fall 2019, with attendances ranging from 40 to more than 100. This series offers an excellent opportunity for networking both with speakers and other attendees; the seminar regularly has attendees from other area universities as well as EPA and NIEHS. Other highlights included support for trainee travel to scientific conferences including the Superfund annual meeting; ongoing interactions with and training via the Research Translation Core and Community Engagement Core; research support including trainee-initiated mini-grants and mentoring opportunities; and career development activities including non-academic opportunities. Overall, these activities provide trainees with an outstanding capacity to carry out and communicate about Superfund-relevant research, and pursue careers in environmental health.
