Superfund Research Program
The Administrative Core continues to organize center-wide monthly meetings to keep PIs and trainees informed about the progress and activities of other components, and to foster effective collaboration. Additional “facilitated interactions” have further supported collaboration between projects and cores through structured discussions and planning sessions for activities requiring interactions across different components. The products of all Projects and Cores, including but not limited to publications, presentations, outreach activities, community interactions, and workshops, are tracked by the Administrative Core and communicated to NIEHS and the public through social media, including the Center website, Facebook, Twitter, and media releases/interactions. The Administrative Core organized 2019 External Advisory Board meeting (November 13-14, 2019), a NASEM Stakeholder meeting (October 9, 2019), and is organizing a disaster preparedness event (February 10, 2020). In 2020, the TAMU Superfund Research Center will be hosting the NIEHS 2020 SRP Annual Meeting in College Station, TX, (December 14-16, 2020) and will offer a 2-day hands-on disaster training workshop at TEEX (December 17-18, 2020). Finally, the Administrative Core coordinated the solicitation, submission, review, and administration of four new pilot projects in 2019.
