The University of North Carolina and Duke University proudly co-host
The 25th Annual Meeting of the Superfund Research Program
Marriot City Center - Raleigh, North Carolina - October 21-24, 2012
The first full day of the conference will focus on the Program's success in establishing a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration that generates new thinking and results that are not achievable by single-discipline science. Topics will also highlight the significance of training interdisciplinary scientists and engineers to address the complex problems associated with hazardous substances. In addition, there will be an emphasis on using research to inform the risk assessment and remediation decision-making processes.
Day two will place a focus on the importance of the critical contributions of transdisciplinary research to improving public health. During this day, presentations will be dedicated to hypothesis-driven research as it applies to impacted communities as well as global issues. Throughout the meeting, the research by SRP trainees will be highlighted.
SRP announces a special symposium to address the complexity of environmental exposures. Topics will focus on identifying and integrating emerging approaches and advanced technologies in the understanding of exposure and response to multiple stressors that are applicable to both human and environmental health. During this forum we will strategize on approaches to understand this exposure-disease paradigm.
