Progress Reports

Year:   2019  2018  2017 

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)Superfund Researc Program (SRP)Center Research Translation Core (RTC) has ensured efficient communication among the projects and cores, and many new relationships have been strengthened and forged with other SRP centers. Within the MIT SRP community, the RTC has contributed to dozens of meetings throughout the year, including all-hands and trainee meetings. In terms of interactions with other SRP centers, the MIT SRP Center has active engagement with the University of Pennsylvania, University of Rhode Island, Boston University, Northeastern University (PROTECT), the University of Washington, Louisiana State University, Dartmouth, Columbia University, University of Arizona, and the University of New Mexico SRP centers.

The MIT SRP has also fostered relationships with stakeholders at the local, state, and national level. At the local level, the RTC has also fostered partnerships with community groups, including the Toxics Action Center, the Wilmington Environmental Restoration Committee, the Mystic River Watershed Association, and the Friends of the Malden River, all of whom are concerned with contaminants in the Mystic River Watershed, which is home to several Superfund sites. The RTC has also facilitated interactions with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MassDPH), the EPA, and the NIEHS. Activities have also included meetings with the Micmac Environmental Department and the Passamaquoddy Tribe Vice Chief as well as attendance at the EPA Region 1 Tribal Summit. Internationally, the SRP has created a strong collaboration with Health Canada, where MIT technology is being translated for use in assessment of chemical safety. Finally, the RTC contributes to the MIT SRP Center website and NextGen Protocols website to enable broader impact.
