Our Mission

To provide Rhode Islanders with a responsive center of technical excellence that takes a research-oriented approach to resolving the complex scientific, engineering, and societal issues that are associated with the remediation of hazardous waste sites, by focusing on the following specific aims:

  1. Build on existing strong academic-government-community partnerships to address local environmental health and contaminant remediation issues as a national model of effective intervention at Superfund and Brownfields sites.
  2. Discover innovative scientific solutions to regulatory uncertainty and environmental contamination by working at the biomedical-engineering interface.
  3. Pursue interdisciplinary approaches to research, training, and communication to maximize the value and impact of our work locally and nationally.
