SRP Annual Meetings
Superfund Research Program
As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, NIEHS organized a grand meeting – the Environmental Health Science (EHS) FEST – to bring together researchers, community engagement teams, trainees, and young investigators who are supported through NIEHS programs. The EHS FEST had a mix of different formats to meet almost everyone's professional needs, enabling grantees to:
- Stimulate new ideas in research approaches, communication, translational research, tools, sensors, and more;
- Highlight scientific accomplishments around crosscutting themes; and
- Share best practices.
The meeting took place December 5 - 8, 2016 in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. While the EHS FEST was held in lieu of our traditional Annual Meeting, we scheduled a block of time dedicated to our Program.
