Training Core Leaders

Superfund Research Program

The SRP Training Cores are considered important to the multi-project Centers because they are a coordinated effort to mentor the next generation of environmental health and science professionals. These Cores support graduate and post-doctoral level cross-disciplinary training in fields related to environmental health and science, and they reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the overall research effort of a Center. For instance, trainees pursuing degrees in the non-biomedical areas are encouraged to understand how their research fits into the context of environmental health sciences and vice versa for biomedical trainees. In addition to providing students with unique opportunities in interdisciplinary research, the Training Cores facilitate practical opportunities for communicating research outcomes to diverse audiences. For example, the trainees learn how to explain their work in a manner easily understood by the intended audience whether the audience be the public or professionals in other areas of science (e.g., seminars presented to other scientists and outside communities). These Cores are also an asset in providing graduate students and post-doctoral researchers with opportunities for professional development and networking opportunities.

A list of Training Core Leaders has been provided as more information about the types of ongoing activities within each Core. This list is also provided as a tool for Training Core Leaders to utilize for networking and collaborative purposes.
