Superfund Research Program
The Administrative Core continues to provide a supportive infrastructure and culture that enables investigators to identify the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the environment, to characterize their toxicity, understand their transformations in humans, and to disseminate this information to stakeholders. The Core has a highly interactive group of investigators fueled by talented trainees and continues to foster this environment by facilitating effective and frequent communications between center members and advisors. In the past year, through a formal strategic planning exercise and guidance from Internal and External Advisory Committees. Collectively, several important issues centered on stakeholder engagement and responsibility transitions have been identified. Center investigators at Oregon State University and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are productive and the Administrative Core continues to rapidly disseminate deliverables via newsletters, websites, presentations, and social media.
