As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Superfund Research Program (SRP), I am humbled to reflect on the important outcomes of fundamental SRP research and the program’s contributions to improvements in human and environmental health.
Below you'll find a compilation of SRP research highlights from a variety of disciplines that use prevention and intervention methods to reduce exposure to potentially harmful contaminants and improve health. For more information about the program, visit the SRP website.
You also can view past issues of the Science Digest.
As part of an SRP-funded small business project, researchers at Biocement Technologies are developing a way to stimulate native soil bacteria to cement together particles in soil, including heavy metals, locking them into structures so they cannot migrate into groundwater.
