Suk, director of the SRP since its inception, described the overall structure of Superfund Research Centers, primary goals of the program, and key changes in the program over time.

"We provide hypothesis-driven basic research and applied, product-oriented research for informing the risk assessment process," said Suk.

Graziano, director of the Columbia University SRP, discussed his research on arsenic in drinking water in Bangladesh, which associates exposures with deficits in child intelligence. Schlezinger, a researcher at the Boston University SRP, discussed her experience as a program trainee before leading her own study focused on receptor-mediated toxicity and chemical mixtures. Ozonoff, director of the Boston University SRP, served as a discussion leader.

CHE, founded in 2002, is an international partnership committed to strengthening the scientific and public dialogue on environmental factors linked to chronic disease and disability.
