The Brown University Superfund Research Program (SRP), Toxicant Exposures in Rhode Island: Past, Present, and Future, is focused on complex environmental contaminant issues in Rhode Island. Rhode Island has a long history of industrial activity resulting in extensive contamination. An academic-government-community partnership model is a key feature of our overall SRP research strategy. Together with our partners we work to expand the understanding of the human health consequences and management of contaminated sites in Rhode Island and other post-industrial states. Our research embraces the complexity of mixed contaminants and their inevitable proximity to dense population centers, and is responsive to the needs of our government and community partners in managing the problems that this causes.
Brown University's Superfund Research Program is a win-win-win for Rhode Island citizens, Rhode Island communities, and the Rhode Island environment.
