  • 324 - Combined Approach Sheds Light on Global Cancer Risk -- Selin
    Release Date: 12/01/2021

    About 90% of the global lung cancer risk from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) does not come from benzo(a)pyrene, according to a study funded by the NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP). Some of these compounds are not regularly monitored.

  • 306 - Three-Dimensional Cell Model Enhances DNA Damage Testing -- Engelward
    Release Date: 06/03/2020

    Superfund Research Program (SRP) Center scientists developed a new platform, known as the SpheroidChip analysis method, to rapidly test for DNA damage in three-dimensional (3D) cell models. Development was led by Bevin Engelward, Sc.D., at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
