Year:   2018  2017 

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) SRP Research Translation Core (RTC) has successfully fostered interactions within the MIT SRP, with other university SRPs, and between the stakeholders at the local, state, and national level. Within the MIT SRP community, the RTC contributes to monthly All-Hands and Trainee meetings. The RTC also supports interactions with other SRPs, including the University of Pennsylvania, University of Rhode Island, Boston University, Northeastern University, University of Washington, and University of New Mexico. Furthermore, the RTC has 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 visiting the Olin Chemical and Loring Air Force Base Superfund Sites, with the Micmac Environmental Department, and with members of the Micmac Tribe. Additional activities included attending the EPA Region One Tribal Environmental Conference. In addition, representatives of the MassDEP and MassDPH met with MIT SRP Trainees to discuss current challenges at the Olin Superfund Site. 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 which are concerned with contaminants in the Mystic River Watershed, which is home to the Olin Chemical Superfund Site. Finally, for broader impact, the MIT SRP website is continually updated. The RTC is expanding use of the NextGen Protocols website for the sharing of detailed experimental protocols with the goal of increasing reproducibility of research and efficacy of collaborations within the MIT SRP and among other university SRPs.
