The OSU SRP Research Experience and Training Coordination Core recruits outstanding next generation scientists to address human and environmental health concerns associated with exposures to complex mixtures of environmental contaminants. Major accomplishments this funding period include: a) continued expansion and revision of required and elective didactic courses; expanded requirements for trainees to present research seminars; formalization and increased frequency of peer evaluations of didactic courses; new experiential workshops; expanded remote offerings of didactic courses to trainees at PNNL and partner SRPs; initial development of new virtual reality training modules; b) new elective training activities emphasizing Trainee-centered "Individual Development Plans (IDP); c) expanded collaborations between OSU and other regional SRPs to develop inter-Center teams of trainees to develop pilot projects funded by RETCC designed to evolve into KC Donnelly applications; d) continued recruitment of a diverse cohort of pre- and post-doctoral trainees. Currently 12 trainees are enrolled in the training program (11 predoctoral; 1 post-doctoral). Over the past year 2 new predoctoral trainees (2 female) joined the RETCC and 4 doctoral (4 female), and 1 postdoctoral (male) trainees matriculated from training (one female to a tenure track assistant professor position in environmental toxicology). Seven new trainees were admitted into the OSU Toxicology graduate program (in 2020), and all are candidates to join the RETCC
