Superfund Research Program
The NIEHS Superfund Research Program supports administrative supplements to enhance the diversity of the research workforce by recruiting and supporting eligible graduate students and postdoctorates from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups that have been shown to be underrepresented in health-related research. Administrative supplements must support work within the scope of the original project/core and may be submitted for research in any of the four SRP Mandate Areas: advanced techniques for the detection, assessment, and evaluation of the effects on human health of hazardous substances; methods to assess the risks to human health presented by hazardous substances; methods and technologies to detect hazardous substances in the environment; and basic biological, chemical, and physical methods to reduce the amount and toxicity of hazardous substances.
