Grantees discussed wide-ranging topics, including the exposome, big data, fate and transport of contaminants, remediation approaches, and community engagement. The meeting also had a special focus on trainee development and included a poster competition, speed mentoring, and networking events.

SRP Health Scientist Administrator Michelle Heacock, Ph.D., was on hand to meet with grantees and hear about their exciting research. "The Northeast SRP Meeting was a unique opportunity for these Centers to come together and discuss their diverse research in a shared regional context," she noted.

The Boston University, Brown University, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University, University of Pennsylvania, and University of Rhode Island SRP Centers participated in the meeting.
