The MIT Superfund Research Program: A Systems Approach for the Protection of Human Health from Hazardous Chemicals
Center Director: Bevin P. Engelward
Grant Number: P42ES027707
Funding Period: 2017-2027
- 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.
- 300 - Nanotube Sensor Detects Nitrosamines in Air -- Swager
Release Date: 12/04/2019
Massachusetts Institute of Technology Superfund Research Program researchers have developed a sensitive and inexpensive carbon nanotube-based sensor that can measure N-nitrosamines in air.
