Progress Reports

Year:   2019  2018  2017 

The Research Translation Core (RTC) strengthened existing networks with NIEHS and other SRPs through knowledge transfer and External Advisory Board service (Aim 1). Internal collaborations between the RTC and other Texas A&M University SRP Cores and Projects were leveraged to extend the impact of the Center’s research. The RTC invested in partnerships between Texas A&M University SRP and federal, state, and local governments by attending, coordinating, and hosting community events (Aim 2). Significant progress was made on developing decision support tools and technologies for environmental assessment for end-users in both private and public sectors (Aim 3). In collaboration with the Exposure Science and Decision Science Cores, Exposure and Hazard Dashboards were created and will be disseminated to end-users as decision support tools following refinement and validation. The reach of Texas A&M University SRP research was enhanced in Year 2 through targeted outreach and dissemination to non-governmental stakeholders, including non-SRP researchers, non-profit organizations, and community members (Aim 4).
